Age of Swords comes out next week, but that didn’t stop this Barnes & Noble from putting it out early. If I were willing to go non-digital I’d be reading it right now.

I’m looking forward to Iron Gold. It’s the fourth book of the Red Rising series which explores distant future humans splintered into sub-groups with one dominant over the solar system.

I’ve been listening to The History of English Podcast. It’s not easy to binge but it’s a mainstay in my weekly podcast rotation. I’m currently around the fall of the Roman Empire. It’s fascinating that our alphabet has bounced between cultures but with only minor changes.
