Re: Medieval history books That is a big scope, both in time and geography, covering a multitude of cultures and technology levels!

That said, I can and do recommend a book called The Edge of the World: how the North Sea made us who we are which I found gave a really interesting look at "Dark Age" Britain, Lowlands and Nordic sort of areas.

Supremacy's Bounty (Grimsnark Scifi Thriller) (Updated on 8/22/2019)

Today I did the cover reveal for my next book on Twitter and Facebook, but couldn't resist the chance to share it with you fine folks.

This cover art is by talented artist Shen Fei, who's work can be found here:

From the Back Cover
As a feared and respected bounty hunter, Mackenzie Flores enjoys the finer things in life: a dependable rifle, a clean glass of dirty whisky, and a reputation that leaves her flush with contracts and the freedom to pick and choose her jobs. At least until the Supremacy blows up everything she owns and takes her girlfriend away.

To rescue the woman she loves, all Mackenzie has to do is take down three crime lords, one planet of super soldiers, and a human trafficking base on the moon. Fortunately, she has powered armor and smart bullets. Unfortunately, they’ve all gone missing.

Praise? for Supremacy's Bounty
"If you like this sort of thing, this is something you'll like. And the best part is, now Eric thinks I've read his book." - David Alan Mack, The New York Times author of the bestselling Dark Arts series.

"A much better title than "Son of Supremacy" or "Supremacy II: The Quickening." - Tom Doyle, author of the American Craft series.

“Oh God, he wrote another one?” - Mike Kern, author of Dark Winter

"Never has a well-armed duo been so clueless, yet so lovable." - T. C. Weber, author of Sleep State Interrupt

"The best and only book I've read this year!" - A.Z Anthony, author of Servant of Rage

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel I'm not sure if people outside the UK can access this, I really hope you can.

This half hour program called "The digital human" is broadcasted every Monday. Today's episode, called "Haven", was amazing, I listened to it while driving home from work and just missed the first 10 minutes or so.

It relates to a life online, to how people can create relationships online and have wonderful friends, and help each other... all the things that so many of you, present and past members, have done for me, ever since this thread was created.
A big hug and kiss of thanks to all my *real* friends :-*

Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world
Huh. Robert Mueller just release his report.

Got to say I'm pretty disappointed with his conclusions. I would rather it had never been released and the orange menace had it hanging over his head the whole time.

I was really hoping he would go out of the White House and straight into prison. That was probably too much to hope for, although from what I have heard he's done plenty of illegal things.

It would be pointless to say once more that I'm sick of him and all the populist leaders like him. No doubt we have another six years of this moron to put up with.

I sympathize greatly. But consider - the report is merely the facts. What to do with the facts, in this case, was never up to Mueller. 300+ pages of facts, evidence, and testimony. He's referred a vast amount of info to authorities who can level charges against the president, and likely will. Tampering with the national election is an illusion - it's tampering with multiple state elections (the ones the President cannot pardon). I believe Mueller has laid the ax at Congress's feet - the only ones who can impeach anyway. So once again democracy hinges upon the real power - the voter. Call your representatives. Speak out. Support candidates who listen. Make it your key issue and tell others to do the same. It seems like it's just noise, but noise matters. Silence is acceptance.

Re: What are you currently reading? I was like page 100 something through Last Argument of KIngs when my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to just flipped through to the end of the book. For a while now, I had the feeling that the ending wasn't going to be good, and boy how I was right. Thus end my journey through one of the most disappointing series I've ever read, which made me wonder why did I even bothered to slog through book 1 in the first place. With authors that are determined to shit at everyone of their character's life there are no happy ways out, I guess.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.

I have good reason to be nostalgically excited.  :)

My mother baked a LOT when I was a kid. One of her staples was a brown cookie... thing... who's name I'll translate as "cocoa lengths", and it was a favourite of mine. Somehow since leaving home circa twenty years ago I've never had one. I recently remembered them and asked mom to dig up the recipe. She sent it to me earlier today, and tomorrow afternoon I'm going to have a crack at baking some.

I'm looking forward to this...

Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world It's kinda masochist, isn't it? You know that reading about them will make you mad and angry and all those bad things, but you can't stay away...
(also because you never know if in the middle of it all something will affect you directly, specifically)

On a plus, I got the notice I'm getting my £65 application fee back ::)
