April Books

I've read two novels this month, plus a book of TV scripts:

12. Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen - OK, but not one of his best. There wasn't a lot of tension and not as laugh-out-loud funny as some of his earlier novels.

13. Storm Front by Jim Butcher - first of The Dresden Files urban fantasy novels, featuring wise-cracking, hardboiled wizard and private investigator Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. I've never seen the TV series but the book was pretty good, although it started slowly. Exciting ending though.

14. Alan Partridge: Every Ruddy Word: All the Scripts: from Radio to TV and Back - I've been reading this on and off for a few weeks and it's very funny. There's something to make you cringe on nearly every page.

On the RPG front:

- Pathfinder #7 Edge of Anarchy by Nick Logue -- the first part of the Curse of the Crimson Throne adventure path, set in the city of Korvosa. I haven't managed to get hold of the Guide to Korvosa yet (every time I go in Orc's Nest they're out of stock), but this adventure has some great city locations in it, some of which are going to end up in Parsantium. The adventure was an entertaining read, although it felt more like several linked small adventures than one big one. The monsters in the Bestiary section are also pretty cool, but the bit I enjoyed the most was the Pathfinder's Journal which covered the diarist's sojourn among the Shoanti barbarians of the Cinderlands - witty and great fun to read.

- Curse of the Crimson Throne Player's Guide -- a little guide book that goes with the latest Pathfinder AP. I think these things are great. I'll be doing something similar for the Parsantium campaign.
