The Fifth House is here

My new book, The Fifth House, is out today!

Following closely on the events of The Only City Left, Allin Arcady searches for his lost love. Tyena Branch struggles to scavenge enough food to keep her mother and herself alive. And in the cat city of Pudlington, the uneasy truce between humans and felines is already faltering.

Into this turmoil enters the true power behind Doyle Arcady’s reign... The Fifth House.

DRM-Free everywhere. Free Kindle version with purchase of the softcover. No werebeasts were harmed in the making of this book.

Early Reviews for The Fifth House:

1) Mack Moyer: http://www.mackmoyer.com/?p=118

“It seems like every novel taking place after the fall of human civilization spends chapter upon chapter telling us how things like zombies and laser swords came about. Goldman does none of that. His world is full of talking cats, ghosts, monsters and tiny coils that can turn you into a werebear (or perhaps a squid). It’s just awesome for the sake of being awesome.”

2) Ryan Toxopeus: http://ryantoxorants.blogspot.ca/2015/04/review-fifth-house-by-andy-goldman.html

“The way themes re-emerged from the first book to be bigger and badder than before was excellent. The voices of the two main characters were distinct. I found myself liking Allin's humour more than Tyena's straight shooting attitude, but both were well written.”

3) Galit Balli: http://thereadingbud.com/2015/05/05/book-review-the-fifth-house-arc/

“I had high expectations from this book as I just finished reading the first only a few weeks ago and I am so happy it didn’t fall and this book was such a wonderful read. It was fast paced with lots of action scenes and twists and turns that can make you scream at the book.”

Good grief, +Andy Goldman! It's like I'm in a time-warp! I think I need to step away from the computer . . . anyhow, a very late congrats to you (I thought that cover looked familiar...)

Okay, I'm turning off my Craigslist search e-mails, because I am overloaded with Lego. Today's haul was this huge bin for $25. I won't be done sorting this for a long time.

Life of a Lego addict

I drove 20 minutes down the freeway today for a garage sale that promised Lego. Ended up with a single Lego ostrich. The rest of their stuff was a bunch of tiny sets or pieces of sets, grimy with dust.

Later, I traveled 40 minutes north to meet someone off of Craigslist. Box full of fantasy-era Lego for $20 bucks. Mother lode.

Best use of of my Sunday? Dunno. Fun? Yes.

This sounds so bizarre it makes me actually want to watch it. Murder, affairs with teachers, dark secrets, Mädchen Amick. It's not a reboot of Archie Comics, it's a reboot of Twin Peaks.
We’re pretty excited for Riverdale—the thought of getting something like the current, excellent modernized take on Archie on the CW could be a ton of fun. Hey, even KJ Apa’s Archie looks pretty good! But over the past few days, we’ve been a little less sure, and now a synopsis of the show has us scratching our heads in confusion.

Every time I get the urge to play Lego Dimensions, there's a 4 GB update waiting to convince me otherwise.

In addition to the bin of Lego, I got a bag of Bionicle which ended up having a couple of Stormtroopers and a few pack dogs. And hiding in the big bin were a couple of Wampas, although Luke has been at one of them. Maybe his arms are somewhere in there, too.

Sigh. There was a murder in our city last night, involving high school students as victims (one died, one is in the hospital) and possibly as suspects.
When we went to pick up the girls from school this afternoon, the school had just been put on lockdown due to nearby police activity related to the murder. We stayed in the Multipurpose Room to be near them when they were let out, which happened about 30 minutes later.
It's reassuring that they have procedures in place, but also very disturbing how something like this can transform everyday life into a feeling of life under siege. (And I know we have it easy here compared to many places in the US and around the world.)
It's a reminder that civilization is a thin veneer on top of a world of claw and tooth.

So scary for all of you! I'm glad the girls don't really get what's going on. Hope things settle there.

I know calling it Comixology Limited would be less of a selling point, but... At a glance this looks like an all-you-can-read service, but it's only the first volume or couple of issues of each series. Perhaps Comixology Sampler would have been a better name.
The biggest digital storefront for comics just announced a new flat-rate service that lets users read through thousands of stories for $6/month.

I saw a comment saying it was more like Amazon Prime, where you can sometimes see old seasons but not current ones. That seems like a good fit. Frankly, it should just be a part of Prime proper.

Welcome to the future. After hours of trying various fixes in my router and PS3, I gave up and ran an ethernet cable across the gorram room.

I wire mine and give it a fixed IP, too. But that's a holdover from when I played MW.

Earlier this morning I said I was going to outsmart Lego Dimensions by updating it just in case I wanted to play it later, since whenever I want to play it demands a 4 GB update first. Well, it must have heard me, and decided it would be the one to outsmart me. Well played, video game. Well played.

Maybe if I finally bring the PS3 up to the current system software version, it will work...

Story
Tagline
Writer/Husband/Dad
Introduction
My first novel, The Only City Left, is on Amazon. In this post-apocalyptic science-fantasy, the Earth has become a planet-sized city, and it's falling apart. Allin Arcady must survive long enough to see the Sun rise on the Roof of the World, but he's lost in the depths of the city, and a horror from his past is hot on his heels.

I am a dad, husband, and writer. I like science-fiction and fantasy in most formats, including books, movies, TV, comic books, RPGs, and webcomics.

I liked the food here. Big pancakes and thick, tasty strips of bacon. The eggs were cooked properly. You order at the counter and then basically don't see staff again unless you seek them out, but everyone was polite when I needed something.

The sandwiches were excellent, which you would expect. Dessert, not so much. We had black-and-white cookies and carrot cake, neither of which was up to par. The waitress reported that they recently started making the cookies in-house, which is too bad because they don't know how to do it well. Service was okay. The wait staff was nice but there were a lot of "we ran out of that," and "we can't substitute this." If you go in knowing that it's their show, not yours, you won't risk disappointment. I would return for the sandwiches alone.

Kind of pricey for the amount of food you get and the food was just okay.

This is a laid-back environment with some great breakfast food, especially the foot-wide pancakes. They only take cash but there is an ATM inside if you need it. The staff is very casual, but they're on top of refills and whatnot.
