The first three quartes of the book are strictly a continuation of the end of The Stars at War. They are dreck. The final quarter, an independent story, is much, much better.
If you read this blog on the website (and you do, because my feed is garbage ;-) you may have noticed a goodreads.com widget on the right.
It's not that my reading habits are interesting to anyone, since I have become a very shallow reader in the last two years or so (a terrible, terrible involution caused by all the free scifi ebooks floating around), but I love that site. In the past I posted some book-related stuff here, but it was always sort of guilty about it, posting things my readers (few as they are) probably don't give a damn about.
With goodreads, I have a way to vent my shallow opinion about my shallow readings. I need the same thing for movies.
Also, it's a much more reasonable thing than all that "now listening" idea. Who care what you are listening? It lasts for 3 minutes! A book is something you have in your head for at least a couple of days! It is so much more meaningful.
I have been thinking about using rst2pdf to create presentations. I finished exposing PDF transitions today, and that part works nicely.
Some sort of "page decoration" feature.
Handout support? I think this would work nicely with some sort of "conditional" directive. I need to think about it some more.
I intend to have that done for next friday, and release then.
