Reading: Filter House by Nisi Shawl. Having said nice things about the Neocon Press short story collections, I have to say that (so far) this short story collection is far superior. I've particularly enjoyed The Pragmatical Princess in which a princess forms an alliance with the dragon that is supposed to eat her and The Rainses', an evocative ghost story, but one in which the end towards which the ghosts strive is ultimately as out of date and unnecessary as the ghosts themselves.

Listening: I listened to an excellent episode of Verity in which they discussed the first Virgin New Adventures novel which made me want to fairly seriously re-examine my own experiences with the novels. By way of this I also discovered the Doctor Who Book Club Podcast. I've listened to the first podcast available via my app (number 13 for some reason) - a little long at 90 minutes though it does include a detailed recap of the events of the novel under discussion, but given my fondness for the novels, I'm looking forward to the rest of these.

Watching: Having caught up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, we've watched the first episode of Agent Carter (Jury favourable but still out). B. and I have fallen back on Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries in between episodes of old Doctor Who.
