To Shape the Dark, ed. Athena Andreadis: a hit and miss collection; I particularly liked the Singh and de Bodard stories.

.@takealot, you delivered my mother's order to the wrong address days ago; still no resolution. What does she have to do to get this fixed?

@faassen Yes; PDFs of not scanned books. ;) OCR should be good enough to fix this now.

@faassen The speed of loading is the least of the problem; scanned images of text are also not searchable, indexable, etc..

@faassen If the typeface is consistent it should be possible to OCR reliably -- but just because it's possible doesn't mean it's done. :/

The Bel Dame Apocrypha (trilogy) by Kameron Hurley: often grim and depressing, but I really enjoyed the worldbuilding and characterisation.

The Mirror Empire + The Empire Ascendant by Kameron Hurley: feels too busy; too many factions, axes; would have preferred a narrower focus.

PSA: you can't stick "whatsoever" at the end of any sentence. Why has everyone started doing this all of a sudden? https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/whatsoever-vs-at-all.2412596/

Currently reading The Stars Are Legion. There's a fictional name which looks like a typo of a common Polish woman's name. So distracting. :/

Mouse Metronome. Not as ridiculous as some Star Wars EU names. ;) https://twitter.com/HapaxLegoman/status/846384511994748928

CDs are so old now that arts & crafts websites that tell you what to do with your piles of useless CDs have begun to succumb to bit rot.
