I like what you've done with your eyes.

Having finished Allan Batchelder's wonderful The Abject God, I bought the new Vox Day book, A Sea of Skulls. Sequel to A Throne of Bones, which was great. I've been checking his author page for a couple years waiting for a new book in this story line.

@Bierschneeman Never been, but we were never told where each of us was sent so one of the other clones might be in a sleeper cell there. If this person is high up in government, law enforcefment or uses the internet a lot then chances are he's one of us. But I never told you that.

I just bought the first five Expanse audiobooks. Plan on revisiting the lot before picking up #6.

Got them all for about £20 thanks to an Audible offer!
