Things that keep me from joining any reading: Pen & Paper Roleplay. Today: alternative 80s in Sweden by Simon Stålenhag. There are also illustrated books from him and there is an Amazon series in the making!
Creating stories yourself is just as good as reading books 😁

It is a loosely book related post, so I thought it's ok to post here 😁

A different kind of book: an roleplaying book. Tales from the Loop is about kids that live in in the area of a particle accelerator in an alternate 80's by Simon Stålenhag. Robots, and magnetrine ships are common and the occasional door to another time or reality can happen around the Loop.
You create kids that get in trouble, solve mysteries and face their personal problems. Non-lethal, because kids don't die.

Anecdotes/memories of a young man in an alternate version of 80‘s/90‘s Sweden. A local particle accelerator creates strange situations for the town inhabitants. Robots left derelict in fields. Modified creatures roaming farms. Rifts in the space-time continuum bring dinosaurs to the present. I enjoyed the art and the accompanying sparse tales.

tournevis Love it! 4mo
JazzFeathers I discovered this artist a couple of years ago. He's brilliant. And the, you know, l'm an 1980s gal. 4mo

I‘ve got my #24in48 physical books #tbr stack somewhat sorted. These are the books I hope to start and finish over the weekend. I‘ve got another stack of currently in progress books that I hope to make some headway in or complete this weekend as well. I‘ve also got Middlemarch and Norse Mythology on audio for when I need to move around. 🀞🀪
