Recently Read

It's been awhile since I last posted what I've read. This is what I'll admit since the last post.

Rewrite by Gregory Benford
A man dies and awakens in his sixteen year old body with a chance to live his life over again and again and again. Turns out he is not alone and some try to alter history to suit themselves. Well they all do but the bad guys push toward a nihilistic endgame. The hero resists them. We also get Robert Virginia Heinlein as side characters. I was initially reminded of Ken Grimwood's Replay, but the tone is different and really very different. It's been a long time since I picked up a Benford book. I may have to backtrack and read more. Highly Recommended.

Slayer by Kiersten White
I read somewhere that Fox was planning on rebooting Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I hope not. Modern Hollywood can't avoid f**king these things up. This book takes place in the Buffyverse of old kinda. It takes up after the 8th and 9th Season from the Dark Horse Comics. Buffy is there but very much a side character. It tells the story of the remaining Watchers and the last girl to gain the powers of Slayer before the end of magic. In a lot of ways it's routine but it was a fine light read. It you are a Buffy fan you will like it. Recommended.

The Sky Blue Wolves by S. M. Stirling
The last, maybe sorta, of the Amberverse Series. It wraps of the story adequately. It is standard Stirling which means excellent. Very well done but kinda abrupt ending. I think it was time to move on and Stirling realized it. It is a must read for fans of the series. If you haven't read any of the series start with the first. Fortunately for us, Stirling has moved on to new things.

Black Hats by Max Allan Collins
Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson versus Al Capone in New York City. A very nice what if novel of the 1920's. As I read I pictured Sam Elliot as Wyatt Earp. Highly Recommended.

The Storm by David Drake
The sequel to Drakes take on Arthurian Legend in The Spark. The older Drake gets the smoother he gets. Highly Recommended.

Voices of the Fall, edited by John Ringo and Gary Poole. this is the latest in Ringo's Zombie series. Ten short stories by authors such as John Birmingham, Dave Freer, Michael Z. Williamson, Sarah Hoyt. There is one by Ringo but it isn't the best of the bunch. I really like to see where Birmingham take his character in a novel. all of the stories are good. A few are excellent. Highly recommended.

Right Wing Terrorist?

The Left is all for blaming the Shooter in New Zealand on Trump and the Right, but When you look at his manifesto it seems he leans left far more than right plus there's that pro-gun control anti-Second Amendment thing he had going.

...making passage of a clearly unconstitutional law a criminal violation with every congress critter voting yea for it doing time. Is that extreme? No less so than this attack on free speech and the gun culture. Kids have free speech rights too with the only allowable restriction on it those placed on them by their parents.

They Want Us Dead.

Some do anyway.

SWATting is when someone makes a report to the police of a horrific crime in the hope that when the police respond they will kill the accused. It's basically murder by cop. Here's the a recent example where a death occurred as a result.

Comicsgate, in my opinion, is a conservative movement of comicbook fans that prefer comics as entertainment rather than political indoctrination. They prefer a customer centered product where, if there are politics in them, the politics service the story not the other way around, AND they tend to be vocal about it. The SJW sided comic community responded as SJWs always do with mostly hate filled invective and attempts to destroy the lives and careers of their opponents. They've had some success with that, but it appears that's not enough now.

The Stupid is Strong on the Left

Democrats this week approved legislation to require background checks for essentially all sales and transfers of firearms -- but rejected GOP-led efforts to amend the legislation to alert law enforcement authorities when gun buyers, including illegal immigrants, fail those background checks.
What's the point of a law without an enforcement mechanism? Is the Deep State gonna make it up as they go along? Ths stupid and damn scary at the same time. Oh, write your Senators and ask them to kill this measure.

The HB 86 Wish List

HB 86 - A Bill To Californicate North Carolina Gun Laws


That's exactly what this is. A wish list from Everytown and the Demanding Moms that I'm not sure they actuall expect to go anywhere. It is most likely dead on arrival. The GOP still has a majority in the North Carolina Legislature, but complacency will kill us, and some members of the GOP aren't our friends. Contact your representatives and tell them to kill this abomination in committee.

Background Checks Don't Work

Aurora shooter opened fire at termination meeting; one victim was HR intern on first day
So a guy in Illinois with an out of state felony conviction and at least eight local arrests in his criminal history, including one for domestic violence, manages to pass the background check to get a FOID card and the NICS check to purchase a handgun. They discover the aforementioned incidents when he attempted to get a concealed carry permit. they revoked his license, told him to return the firearm, and when he didn't did nothing. Yesterday, he killed five people at his place of employment when he was fired. Who's fault is that? Not the NRA. Not gun owners. I'd go as far as to say not even the State of Illinois because if a State as anti-gun as Illinois can't make their anti-gun polices work, no one can. Background checks don't work. Depending on them to save lives instead of good people with guns is just plain stupid.

It's Weber but it is the latest in a series that requires you to read them from the beginning to have a clue as to what is happening. If you like Weber you will like this book. I would call it a transition book that does little but set up the next novel and it's new "Big Bad". Recommended.
