Link roundup

1. I really liked Broken Angels, the second novel I've read by Richard Morgan. It's a little tough to describe, basically imagine a tale of WW2-era profiteering featuring a Humphrey Bogart like character, if Bogart's character was a genetically modified super soldier. But the cover, which you can see at Amazon is embarrassingly bad.

2. The good news: EA says expect less in-game advertising in the future. The bad news: expect more microcharges since those have proven to be highly lucrative. Via.

3. Funny comic by James Kochalka. After reading it, you'll want to know what he looks like.

  1. god, 99% of all fantasy and sci-fi bookcovers are embarassing, aren't they? i wonder why is that. won't people buy fantasy books with nice covers because they don't recognize them as fantasy if they don't look shit?
