I sometimes get ideas for settings that I'm not sure I could develop too well.  I currently have one kind of brewing.  Basically take the typical fantasy world with Elves, Dwarfs, Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, Gnomes, Etc and instead of being set during a medieval-ish time period I see it set during something similar to the 1930s.  Technology is becoming more and more common due to the ease of it over technology.  A great war is brewing as an evil Empire is stirring.

I would see it mixing noir with fantasy elements.

For a long time I have heard good things about the Elric stories by Michael Moorcock, but I have just never read any of them. Recently I've started trying to read some various anthologies. One I got from my local library was called Flashing Swords! #2, it has 4 stories in by L. Sprague de Camp, Michael Moorcock, Andre Norton and John Jakes. I tried reading the de Camp story, but couldn't get into it. Started reading the Elric story, The Jade Man's Eyes, by Moorcock and I had tore through it before I even realized it. So now I have two Elric collections by Moorcock coming from the library.

Wish I had my two Conan collections with me, but those are somewhere in Upstate New York. The local library doesn't have any Conan.

Not much going on down here in Florida.

Getting a little writing done.

Been very hot and humid this last week. Looks to be the same this week. Even with AC it's rough.

Tired a lot.

Something on my mind I wanted to post about, but for the life of me I can't remember.

Hasn't even been a full month yet, but it feels like it's been forever. Granted that could just be my warped sense of time.

Watched a bunch of episodes of Mythbusters yesterday that I missed when I didn't have cable. Nothing major, but fun.

Saw an ad for NCIS: Los Angeles for this fall. Not sure what to think of that since NCIS is so much a character driven show to the point that the cases they work are almost just background. So I guess it depends if the characters on NCIS:LA are compelling or generic.
