Book Giveaway: Orc War-Fighting Manual (21/10/2013)

Another week in which not a lot got done. My second Bulldog Drummond novella for Piqwiq got drafted and I’m just about recovered from the great iPhone-rain interface disaster. A lot of the last two weeks and a good chunk of this week is going to be filled with trying to choose a secondary school. I suspect I speak for a lot of parents when I say that I don’t really want all this choice – I just want the local school to be a damn good one and for that to be all there is to it. It also occurs to me that there is surely a viable commercial venture in a website for people to whinge about really dumbass drivers. Had some peaches yesterday, people jumping the queue at temporary traffic lights into a single-file stretch of road only to then find the lights were red, jump those too and then end up blocking the one lane through the roadworks. And I guess that one dick per day is tolerable random background noise but several people did this. So if you were in Stratford on Sunday and waiting for ages and ages at a set of temporary lights, I’m sorry about the dickheads.

This week’s giveaway is the Orcish War-Fighting Manual by Den Patrick. My last regular gaming character was an orc so i have a soft spot for this.

Usual deal – comment on this post before October 28th  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victims for a free copy of the book. This week, your challenge is to either vent some spleen about bad drivers, expound an Orcish approach to dealing with some of life’s problems or, for extra points[1], both at once.

Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far. Recent winners, I have a backlog again.

[1] Extra points not guaranteed to actually mean anything.

    Idiot driver flew through a pedestrian light this morning , Breaking a red light in the process and nearly taking my fucking leg off and just missing a pram. Unfortunately for him I had my hand full of change fro just leaving the shop and I’m assuming the back of his car is scraped to hell following a bombing of euros. Managed to pick most of it back up then. Would leave to tear out his accelerator and beat some cop on into him. Idiot thinks getting to work twelve seconds earlier allows him to risk others lives. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
