Update: Reviews

Things have been pretty quiet on the blogging front, due to life getting 'hectic' for a few months there. Things are levelling out and whilst I don't see myself returning quite to the glory days of 30+ posts a month very often, hopefully there will be an increase in more meaningful content on the blog (i.e. reviews and more substantial articles) soon.

What's in the pipeline:

Books: Books have massively fallen by the wayside in recent months, but I'm getting back on top of reading again. Expect a review of Steles of the Sky (which I started halfway across the Atlantic in April and finished last week on the sofa at home) soon. I'm already a quarter of the way through Joe Abercrombie's Half the World so that should follow relatively soon after. I also want to resume my progress through the Vorkosigan and Wild Cards series, but there'll also be reviews of books by Ian Esslemont, Peter F. Hamilton and Kameron Hurley in the offing as well.

Games: Many weeks of playing Divinity: Original Sin have left me absolutely nowhere near finishing it, and now the equally humongous Wasteland 2 is taking up a lot of my free time. Game reviews will resume once I actually manage to finish something.

TV: Thanks to multiple viewing projects going on at the same time, this is one area I've been making more notable progress. Expect reviews of Community (Season 5), True Detective (Season 1), Veep (Season 2), The Legend of Korra (Season 2) and The Walking Dead (Season 4) soon.

And, 12 days later, still no book reviews. I'm about done visiting this site.

Dont take any notice of the previous comment. I appreciate the hard work you put in and enjoy reading your reviews.

Anonymous 1 must be out of his mind.
This blog is one of the best blogs on SF&F.

Apart from the fact that Wert covers an insane amount of material (he must have a clone dealing with the more mundane aspects of live, otherwise he couldn't possibly find time to read/watch/play all these items), what's more important his reviews and essays are of an exceptionally high quality.

But the most ridiculous thing is that Anonymous 1 apparently has serious deficits in reading comprehension:
Not only does Wert explain in the very blog entry why he has slowed down recently but the last entry which has been up when this ridiculous comment was written was his "To New York!" piece talking about him being out for one week!

I for one am willing to wait the outrageously long period of 12 days (scandalous!!!) for more quality content. ;-)
