Ah, my unwelcome gallstone.

Your days of vexing my digestion approach their end.  You have a week to contemplate your miserable existence: my only regret is that I have to lose my gallbladder in the process.  It was led astray, I know – and forgive.

I have no idea how many days I’m going to be flying from the painkillers, mind you.  Probably a couple, which is why I’m in the process of loading up the Kindle/iPad with stuff to read, as time and money allows…

Yup, no shame. Tell you what, though: feel free to tell me what book I should be spending your donation on.

    have you read the Honor Harrington series? If not, I will donate to start you on your way.

    Eclipse Phase core rulebook. Hard sci-fi/horror genre just a few steps away from CthulhuTech (though, IMO, scarier since so much of it is based on harder science):

    Oh, and that core rulebook? 402 pages for $15:

    Can’t beat it.

  • Cameron says:

    Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta. Stark lines separating good from evil, private citizens making money off killing evil creatures and a lot of firearms.

  • Brian Swisher says:

    Pretty much anything by George MacDonald Fraser…however, I’d advise you not to read “The Pyrates” too soon after the operation…laughing so hard might break something…

  • MikeCG says:

    “Ghost of a Smile” by Simon R. Green (the second installment in his “Ghost Finders” series) just came out on Tuesday. I got the eBook and it’s pretty good so far. Planning on going back to reading it after lunch/Rush is over.

  • Metzger says:

    Not to be a downer, but, I just came off reconstructive surgery and the pain meds made reading almost impossible. May want to check streaming availability for series you never watched. Worked for me. Good luck.

    Ah, the organ that made Dr. Samuel Gall a wealthy man …

    I’d recommend Charlie Stross’ “The Laundry” trilogy, if you haven’t already read it.

  • Moe_Lane says:

    I have completed my Fraser collection already, of course; and Charlie Stross’s Laundry series is likewise on my ‘buy on sight’ list. I’d comment-snob on how I import the Laundry RPG supplements from England, too – except that it’s trivially easy to do that these days, thanks to the Internet. Simon Green I read, but not that series: I’ll check that, the Monster Hunters, and the Eclipse Phase out as time and finances permit.
