Update to What I'm Reading, and why I'm not into it

Finished Dragon.

- In the Afterword, the author claims Roger Zelazny as a critical influence.  Read: Amber series.  So it makes sense that what annoyed me about Amber annoys me about Dragon.

- The book's about ten years old.  I've learned a lot about my trade in ten years,  I'm sure he has too.  And no one ever made me a reliable arbiter of taste, anyway.

Overall grade of C.  Beats reading the average Star Trek novel, anyway.

And I'm over the cold symptoms in record time, except for being tired all the time.  Another day at home.  Greyhounds sleep 18 - 20 hours a day, maybe it'll rub off.

Carry on.
