Diana Wynne Jones - Archer's Goon / Fire and Hemlock

Review.

Next one please! That would be, ehm... Archer's Goon by Diana Wynn Jones.

Somebody once told me it's a parody on Zelazny's Amber series, but I do not entirely agree. Well, there were some similarities, like all those ultra-powerful brothers and sisters quarreling and plotting all the time. There's also the main character who lost his memory, but that is where the similarity ends. And there are enough other things in the book make you smile. Not bad... not bad at all.

Horizon Zero Dawn

If you have a PS4 then why are you reading this?

Stop immediately, boot up your PS4 and start playing Horizon Zero Dawn. It's fantastic. It reminds a little of Enslaved and Heavenly Sword, but throws in the apocalypse and fighting robot dinosaurs with bow and arrow.

Why are you still reading this?

Urotsukidoji - Legend of the Overfiend

Review.

I watched this one ages ago when I first discovered anime. And it's sub-genres... Bishounen... Ecchi... Mecha... Shounen... Shoujo... Don't worry, I don't know the exact meaning either ☺ Most of it is cute, action oriented, romantic. Most if it...

Urotsukidoji, also known as Legend of the overfiend, is different. A rather sick mongrel of porn and horror. At least not my cup of tea.

Adult supervision strongly advised!

Tweaking Windows 10

Windows 10 might be the best Windows ever (at least according to Microsoft) but there are some issues...

Let's ignore horrible Windows 8 Metro leftovers, doubtful respect for the user's privacy, lack of control over updates and (driver) replacements, and focus on one of the biggest annoyances (IMHO that is): the coloring of drag bars in the GUI... (and then some)

Ann Aguirre - Blue diablo / Hell fire / Shady lady / Devil's puch...


Review.

I tried this after her Sirantha Jax books, which were fine.

Not SF this time, but demons, demigods, and love affairs. Perhaps a little too 'shippy' for my taste, just like Sirantha Jax but if you can stand that these provide some light reading that isn't all too bad.
