WowPlot 0.1.2

WowPlot has been updated to version 0.1.2, featuring the following improvements:

  • Added an option to automatically create new plots when splitting (by holding the Alt(⌥)-key).
  • Added new 2.4.3 combat log events (at least the ones I could find).
  • Removed PetFixers entries for Shaman’s summoned elementals (as 2.4.3 fixes this).
  • Added Fire Bomb spell to belong to Jan’Alai.
  • Updated Sparkle to 1.5b4.

Alastair Reynolds – The House of Suns

As usaul, hard SF-ish. Gives a very good impression of time- and space-implications of galaxy-wide colonisation using relativistic travel. There’s a reveal about two-thirds in (complete with “sit down for this”) which on first thought is a bit “meh!”, but nevertheless has very far-reaching consequences which only become obvious a bit later. Also, I don’t quite see the point of the Palatial side-story. Nevertheless, an enjoyable and gripping read, but not quite as good as Reynolds’ other books IMO.
