O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

Goblins!

Hey, I missed the opening day, but Jim Hines' new book, Goblin War is now out. That's totally marvelous. I read his first book, Goblin Quest and loved it. Totally loved it. Having played a gnome in a AD&D campaign once (including sweet talking a dragon), I just enjoyed it even more so. Jim is excellently funny. If you've ever played D&D his universe will feel very comfortable (and it's very accessible if you haven't). Jim gave a reading from Goblin War at Confusion that had the audience laughing and chuckling. Let's just say that I've adjusted the mental picture of his main character because of the reading.

Also, I've only talked with Jim just a little, and he is also funny in person. He also seems very much like a really nice guy.
