I am most taken with the Dover Thrift Editions which are incredibly cheap editions of vast range of classic books from the collection of Anarchist Writings by Kropotkin that I am reading now, via Joseph Conrad novels, to 19th century books on Architecture. Spend almost nothing and get a great read..

Wilderness Of Mirrors Mini Review

Wilderness Of Mirrors: John Wick.

Review: Wick quotes James Bond and jason Bourne, both solo agents that work improvisationally and off the cuff, and then details and builds a game based on planning and teamplay. In other words he says you’re going to watch a Bond movie but when the title sequence ends you discover it’s Mission Impossible.. Mind you, it’s a cracking little rpg for team based, action filled, opposition overcoming fun. Also well suited to caper movies like Oceans 11. Mechanically elegant and simple, co-operative, playable in an evening, all about narrative control, everyone gets a go in the limelight. Cheap, short, best in pdf.
