Late November 2016 Reading....

Here's what I've read so far this month:

1)  Dhamphir by the Hendees.  Fantasy vampire hunter novel.  "Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Lord of the Rings."  It took a while to get into the action.  The last twenty pages made up for it.  I'm at page 84 of 350 pages total.

2)  Wolf Star by R.L. Meluch.  More travails involving the USS Merrimack and her sister ship the USS Monitor against the Roman Palatine Empire for control of the galaxy.  I'm now at page 400 of 685 pages of the dual volume Tour of the Merrimack:  The Myriad/Wolf Star.

3)  The Lost Stars:  Imperfect Sword by Jack Campbell.  I'm about at page 120 of page 350.  The Syndicate rebels at Midway have launched an invasion of Ulundi, a neighboring star system under the control of a rebel Syndicate CEO.  I've enjoyed the Lost Stars series so far and I've been reading it on my NOOK E-reader.

Arm surgery and subsequent gaming adaptation...

My right arm is now been beconstructed.  I don't remember much of the surgery.  It was brutal and compact.  My right is usable and recovering. The ansethima knocked me out for several day.  The days of me painting mass arms are over.  I can work on smaller figure scales with fewer figures  I'm looking at WH40K Cult of the Mechanicus and 30mm Rhulic Dwarf army.  But I'm done buying things in bulk.  Though I've been painting in bulk. Take care and know my basal skin cell cancer was comp;etely removed.  Now, if only my hobbies would cooporate....
