A bit late writing this week due to spending Saturday demoing a game called Ogre at the London Dragonmeet games convention all day, and Sunday was taken by entertaining two dear friends who we have not seen in a while. Last week I had an indulgent catch up with lots of reading and trying to put the internet to rights. Along with getting lost on TV Tropes for three days researching story tropes. That link carries a memetic warning; you will spend more hours there than you intend to. Consider yourself warned.
This week we've been watching Blood Ties, which was based on Tanya Huff's Blood series that started with Blood Price. Anyway, the TV show runs to twenty two episodes over two short seasons. For reasons best known to the TV executives the third series was cancelled, probably because there wasn't enough sex. It's one of those shows that we loved for the relationship between the characters and the dialogue sparkles when the three main characters are kicking against each other.
On the reading front I have been carrying on with Chris Moriarty's Spin State, which due to the above excuses I've still not finished. So I will come back again to it when I have.
