Random Rambles of Late

Picture Linked

Went shopping this evening after the first day of school to replenish my depleted larder.  I ran across the above, BLAECORN UNIDRAGON Russian Imperial Stout (for clearer picture, see here).  At over twelve dollars for 1 & 3/8 pint, it's a little rich for my blood.  Anybody ever try it?

I picked up James Enge's Blood of Ambrose.  I remember it was getting a lot of great buzz a few years back when it came out, but there is something stubborn in me that resists new books in a way that I do not resist new movies.  So I know I'm late to the party, but so far, this book is a first rate piece of sword and sorcery -- well-written, attention grabbing and holding, interesting characters.  It seems that the good buzz was justified.  I'm pretty sure this is going to turn out to be a "Strongly Recommend."

When the hell did summer get so short and school years get so long?  Happy Mythopoeic Monday, all!


  1. You're quiet. Nothing from GenCon yet?

    (BTW, Super Genius is having a "48-Hour, 48% Off, Sorry You're Not At Gen Con Sale!" over on RPGNow/DriveThru.)

  2. You're very quiet. Hope you are just busy.
