Book of the Week: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Tempest.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Tempest is Alan Moore’s and Kevin O’Neill’s final foray into the world of the League, and I somehow missed it when it came out. Well, actually, there was a pandemic. It’s kind of understandable, really.

PS: How is it? Ummm… very strange? As one might expect, really.

Hey, New League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s coming out!

It’s coming out either this week or July 10th, depending on who you believe. Looking forward to it, in my usual raised-eyebrow way. It’s promising to be… very Alan Moore-y, apparently.

Well, Mr. Moore has his little ways, he does, he does.

…and your response is Yowza, congratulations: you’ll probably be into Steampunk. I suggest that you start with The Difference Engine, The Secret Files of the Diogenes Club, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and go on from there.

Book of the week, plus upcoming books.

And so we remove The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress and replace it with the John Adams biography. But I also want to note that the following three books will be coming out very soon:

…and I’m looking forward to all three.
