Water, Can't Live Without It

The Last Stormlord made me thirst
Glenda Larke has something going here
My co-worker said "It took me a while to get into it"
I was a goner after a few pages
The world and society building, very smart
It relates to our life and times
The characters are in constant conflict
With themselves and with others
The power hungry and greedy are pervasive (what's new?)
The story is built around the extremes of limited water
Nothing short of a clear eyed vision of things to come
Potable water is a finite commodity
We can't live without it
Interesting and fresh magics
Tried and true politics
Good story telling
Book two, Stormlord Rising
Is in the hand of a co-worker
I think she is intentionally slow
Denying me my gratification
I thirst mightily 
I want to know what's coming
I want to know yesterday
I need a slacking quaff of prose
Series title, just what you'd think
Stormlord

Music
I can hardly contain myself
Been waiting for this CD impatiently
It is delicious!
So worth the wait
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
Here We Rest
Jason is a former member of Drive-By Truckers
I am so glad he stepped aside to offer his own work
Alt-Country, Americana at its best
Lyrics, nothing short of genius
