    Currently writing a story based upon the video game Unreal. It is about 24 Lifers and a stowaway in a future society as they try to survive the crash of their prison ship on a hostile uncharted planet near the Polaris System. Currently only 14 are left as they try to find a way off of the hostile planet that is infested with an invading alien race.

    The Fox by Frederick Forsyth
    I really don't think the man is capable of turning out a bad book.

    Been around for quite a while but the Spielberger series is still pretty good, IMO.

    Just bought this one for $1 at the used book store.



    It sucks better than a Dyson vacuum cleaner.

    Easily one of the worst researched and written books on the subject I've ever encountered.

    On the other hand, this one is fascinating if you want a history of the early Electronics Revolution:

    Just finished the Osprey volume, Jutland 1916 - Clash of the Dreadnoughts, by Charles London, which certainly gives a good account and overview of the battle.
    As a bonus, today I picked up this gem:

    The Parthenon Enigma
    by Joan Breton Connelly
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...rthenon-enigma

    Built in the fifth century b.c., the Parthenon has been venerated for more than two millennia as the West’s ultimate paragon of beauty and proportion. Since the Enlightenment, it has also come to represent our political ideals, the lavish temple to the goddess Athena serving as the model for our most hallowed civic architecture. But how much do the values of those who built the Parthenon truly correspond with our own?
    Really enjoying this book!

    Just finished reading Bernard Cornwell latest Uthred adventure: Sword of Kings. Good read, especially if you are a Cornwell fan.

    Also finished ''Fighter Pilot'' by Paul Richey, a classic book. The author writes about his experience as a Hurricane Pilot in France at the beginning of WW2. Quite interesting read for those interested in the day-to-day lives of fighter pilots in the early days of war.
