Grr Facebook

In what I can only presume is Facebook being ironic, it messed up the automatic feed of my last 2 posts. So here are the links in full:

I've hopefully fixed the problem, so no more cutting off mid sentence!

Book Review: Feed by Mira Grant

I've actually read 2 of the Hugo nominees so far, I'm just behind on my reviews. This was the last one I read, I'm going to have to think a bit further on Dervish House before I put up a review.

Novel: Feed
Author: Mira Grant

In 2014, an act of eco-terrorism releases an untested cure for the common cold into the atmosphere. Days later, upon coming into contact with an experimental cancer cure it mutates into a highly virulent airborne pathogen. Good news, no more cold, flu or cancer. Bad news, the dead are rising and they aren't happy!

Seperating from GW

In the war gaming world, Games Workshop have managed to get themselves a lot of publicity for doing what they do best, putting their prices up.

In some ways it can even be seen as an annual event by GW, one that gets us annoyed every time and yet we still keep buying the stuff.

This time, I think they might have gone too far. Pulling a large chunk of the metal line and returning it as resin is ok, but coupling it with a price rise on all the mini's when they are nothing more than the same model in a different material is a bit much. On top of that, a wide ranging price hike on the plastic minitures, as much as 20% in some cases, is that last straw.

Quick Vampire Update

Ok, I have a whole list of posts I'm wanting to make, so hopefully expect to see some interesting reading from me soon.

Until then, a quick update on the Vampire the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition I spoke about a few weeks ago. Well, not only will it be available to those not going to the fancy convention in the US, but its now available to pre order here.

While it is $99 (plus at least $25 for P&P), this is the only way to get hold of it, it will not be released in stores. You have until 1st July to get your order in.

Mines in already :)
