Books I read in February 2009, in chronological order, with comments, snide, snarky, or otherwise.
In the Court of the Crimson Kings -- S.M. Stirling: 2/1/09 - 2/2/09
Good book, in a retro 30's sort of way.
A Talent for War -- Jack McDevitt: 2/4/09 - 2/6/09
Indiana Jones crossed with The Da Vinci Code, in spaaace!
Firearms -- Roger Pauly: 2/6/09 - 2/8/09
A brief history of the technology used by people to shoot other people. Oh, and to shoot animals too, but not as often.
The Riddle Master of Hed trilogy -- Patricia McKillip: 2/9/09 - 2/15/09
If you are a farm-boy, even a princely farm-boy, and you have three stars emblazoned on your forehead, then beware! People are out to get you!
Old Man's War -- John Scalzi: 2/18/09 - 2/19/09
Getting old sucks, but it's better than the alternative, in spaaace! (to be reviewed soon, read on the Kindle).
The Merchant's War -- Charles Stross: 2/20/09 - 2/23/09
You think your family sucks; these guys will literally go Amber all over your ass, drag you kicking and screaming back for Thanksgiving dinner, and then make you marry your cousin as part of a forced breeding program.
Eight books for the month, not bad considering it's a school month.
