Fic­tion:

  • , Hannu (Ac­celerando meets Lupin; un­com­pro­mis­ing SF, stuffed full of in­ter­est­ing tid­bit­s—the game-the­o­retic prison at the be­gin­ning is only the be­gin­ning; self­-rec­om­mend­ing)
  • , Heller (I reread it out of cu­rios­ity to see how it’d hold up after all these years. I still en­joyed it.)

Non­fic­tion:

Film/TV

Movies:

Ani­me:

  • (Ghi­b­li-esque movie about a pro­fes­sional cy­cling race in Spain; bet­ter than it sounds)
  • (at­tempt at psychological/supernatural hor­ror that ul­ti­mately falls short of build­ing up to any­thing in­ter­est­ing)
  • (lame mys­ter­ies in the worst Sher­lock tra­di­tion, off­putting fan-ser­vice, not one but two ma­jor deus ex machi­nas; stick to some­thing like Umineko)
