... because this time I review Holst's The Planets, one of my favorite symphonic works!

... Update on my Patreon: To my gratified amazement we blew past the first goal, and are not that far from the second! In a couple weeks the regularly-scheduled new content will begin; fortunately I have the equipment to do at least a halfway-decent recording of me reading stuff, because I have not one but two supporters at that level!
Thanks to all of you who've become Patrons, or shared my Patreon elsewhere!
seawasp: (Poisonous&Venomous)
... looks at Watchmen, the groundbreaking superhero deconstruction by Alan Moore and David Gibbon!
seawasp: (Poisonous&Venomous)
... just went live with my Patreon here!

Take a look, and if you've ever wanted to support me in any way other than the occasional book purchase, here's your chance -- and there will be some exclusive goodies for patrons at different levels!

... another reminder post on what I've done in the last year:
Phoenix Ascendant came out in March, the third and final book in the Balanced Sword trilogy -- thus it's eligible as either a standalone book, or the whole trilogy is eligible as a larger work in awards that have that category. The last Justiciar of Myrionar ,Kyri Vantage, and her friends exiled prince Tobimar Silverun and diminutive toad Poplock Duckweed finally return to Evanwyl to confront the enemy behind all the evil they have faced, and discover that things are far worse than they imagined!
Castaway Odyssey, second in the Castaway Planet series, came out in October. A new group of castaways from the same disaster encounter very different problems than our first group, before the two sets of impromptu colonists can meet each other!
