The Black Company

I’ve started reading some again just for fun. I will go on binges and then suddenly not pick up any fiction for months. I have to say that I am really enjoying Glen Cook’s Chronicles of the Black Company. I’m up to book six (bypassing The Silver Spike) Bleak Seasons. It’s really great stuff and Lady (along with Croaker) is one of my all time favorite characters. I’ve got to figure a way to sneak the name Dorotea Senjak into one of my next games as a homage. If you find that you like Cook’s work then I would also recommend “The Dragon Never Sleeps” which I read last year and which gave me the idea to try out some of his other books. It’s sci-fi and a great read.

I’ll have some development news soon. It’s been a bit of a rough summer but I am making slow but steady progress on multiple projects. The free mini-expansion pack for SI has it’s own code base now and it will be version 1.07. I’m toying with calling it Solium Infernum: Rectification. I’m not sure when I will have it ready. Most likely it will be early next year. I’ve got to get some other work out to generate some more revenue and once that’s on track I’ll be able to advance at a better pace on that front.
