It was a good short story, that really kept the reader interested in finding out what was going to happen next. The plot was good, and it was great the revist Nix's best books (The Old Kingdom Trilogy).
I would have personally liked the see Sabriel and Lirael feature a bit more but this is just a minor point. It left me wanting more, I would really like to see Nix write a full novel
and not just a short story.
Overall a very good read, but its just a taster for the upcoming collection of short stories based in the world that Nix created so well, due to be released later this year for those lucky Americans, add to the fact its all going to a good cause. Well… Read more

this game is just epic, waves of B24 bomber smashing cities to pieces before getting shot down and crashing in flames into the enemy base!
100's of tanks driving across the desert while under artillary fire
infatry moving through a town under sniper fire,
the enemy General getting shot by your sniper
there is just too much to say about this amazing game
I would recommend this to any strategy fan!

I am half way through Far Cry now and the game is amazing!
One minute you are sniping enemys from 100m+ away and the next you are hurtling round the jungle in a jeep being chased by loads of marines. The singleplayer is excellant and very varied.
Multiplayer I was glad to see is not lagged at all (ive got 576k connection) and is also gr8 fun and freshingly different to SP, with teams in DM, and a cool assualt game type where you have to either defend a base or attack it.
All in all An amazing Graphics engine and an excellant game
Everyone should buy this game!
