  • Commented on We get reviews (contd.)
    I wonder how much we'll get to see of the world beyond the United States in Timeline 2. After all, they'd be affected too if the US and the Commonwealth bathe each other in Oppenheimer's light......
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    Something I've been wondering about for a while: What the schnozzle is wrong with Agent Gomez? I'm not talking about her being an a-hole, but about her repeatedly making idiotic suggestions and not realising what's wrong with them until someone...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    I'm curious regarding the rest of "the West" in Timeline 2. Have they gone down the same Stasi-police state path as the US, or do they see it as an American madness to be avoided?...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    ...Looks like I derped out when phrasing my question. With the United States, I meant the one where Rita grew up....
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    Just how severe is the political repression in Empire Games-United States? Aren't you even allowed to point out in public that the Bill of Rights looks like a dead letter without the Stasi coming down on you?...
  • Commented on Empire Games gets a price cut in the UK
    I've been thinking about this, and I'm not sure about the comparison. For one thing, the nuke attack was far more devastating than 9/11 and did involve, you know, weapons of mass destruction. Plus, you know, Cheney being deep in...
  • Commented on Empire Games gets a price cut in the UK
    Isn't that standard play for former colonialist powers? My dad's Dutch, and since moving to the Netherlands a few years ago I've kind of gotten the impression that almost nobody here really knows about the shit the jolly tulip-farmers perpetrated...
  • Commented on Empire Games gets a price cut in the UK
    So I shouldn't be holding my breath about the American people finding out that Cheney was a Clan contact and that he nuked them before they nuked DC?...
  • Commented on Empire Games gets a price cut in the UK
    As luck would have it, between the two nearest libraries I managed to get my hands on the first six books, and now I've started on my freshly bought Empire Games. Rita and her grandfather captured my interest immediately, but...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    For some reason the current mess with Catalonia makes me picture the Spanish Prime Minister as Chancellor Palpatine just as he says "it's treason then," and lunges forward while shrieking like a lunatic....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    One thing I'm a bit puzzled over is how the Black Chamber is supposed to have pulled off a hostile takeover of a nation that has more intelligence agencies than the average Irishman has cousins. Keeping your dastardly plan hidden...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Huh, I guess that makes sense. And here's my (not so modest) question list: :D Well, that's done with. I finally got my hands on the book late yesterday, and thought, “gee, maybe I'll read for an hour or so...
  • Commented on Book day!
    How far counts as "decently far"?...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    What about the Benthic Treaty? Equoid stated that deploying unicorns was 100% likely to provoke an apocalyptic response from BLUE HADES, and now the UK has thousands of the buggers, plus various other nasties......
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    "The New Management is Strong and Stable. Stable for aeons ..." Oh dear... Surely there are loopholes in the Laundry's oaths? So that they can act if the Prime Minister goes full "I for one welcome our tentacled overlords."...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    "Cracks knuckles." Right, I binged the entire series over the course of a month, so here are my questions and observations (those that I can remember at the moment) in no particular order: 1. In the first chapter of Delirium...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    A very British coup? Does that mean we're in for years of armies marching, cities being burnt to the ground, and so forth? Because that's what I remember from history class regarding regime change in the British Isles. :D...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    (All your questions are answered in the next couple of chapters. You will probably not like the answers, but that's the whole point!) ...It's going to involve politicians being denser than osmium, isn't it?...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Oooh, how juicy... "Reaches end of chapter." Well, that was awesome, and 11 July can't come soon enough, but...Schiller?! Disregarding him still being alive in the first place, how is he able to travel to the UK? Hell, how is...
