– Dying Earths: Sixteen Stories from the Ends of Times ★★★½☆ ebook. I backdated the finishing date, just to tidy it all up nicely. I actually finished this on New Year‘s Day.

Currently reading, carrying over into January:
– FBR Ship of Destiny, ebook, still moving along really slowly…
– BR Heroes: Mortals and Monsters, Quests and Adventures, audio, made it to Jason and the golden fleece.

Moving pictures…
– Moonfall, too bad the makers take this movie seriously, otherwise this could have been fun. Pretty hammy acting, too.
– It Chapter Two, it was ok, I had hoped for more.
– A Quite Place II. Good! Surprisingly I really liked Cilian Murphy in this, he is usually not really my cup of tea.
