As one who found Cold Forge disappointing given the hype around it, I will say Into Charybdis has been a very pleasant surprise - It's actually pretty good! As I am still reading, I'm avoiding the podcast until I'm done, but I'm looking forward to listening.

I too liked Charybdis MUCH better.  I had to force myself to finish Cold Forge before Charybdis came out because it being a sequel and all.  Much to my surprise its probably my favorite bit of Alien lore I've gotten in the last decade.

I agree with Kimarhi that Into Charybdis is much better than Cold Forge. I've finished reading and listening to the podcast. I guess I'll have to use some spoiler tags here as my post really will spoil things for people who haven't read. The podcast has big spoilers, too. :-X

As discussed, all these characters had some duality to them. That made them more interesting.

I like the possibilities of the Black Goo. I think Alex White applied it well in Cold Forge and Into Charybdis.

Compared to other androids in the series and EU, Ash seems like sort of a weakling. :o

As usual, good work on the podcast. RidgeTop, good luck with your show.

You can also put me in the "Into Charybdis is the better of the two" category, and I say that as someone that loves The Cold Forge.

Thanks! Show happened earlier this month at my University but it's in a gallery on the campus for a bit.

Yep, here are the images I went with. The project was equestrian photography from last fall to this spring, specifically contrasting domestic and wild horses out here in Utah. This was a selection for the gallery from a number of different shoots I did:

And the gallery itself:

Also, appreciate the podcast feedback, everybody. I really enjoyed the book, my main issue was Duncan and how blatantly evil/incompetent/chaos-causing she was.

Good work, RidgeTop. Thanks for sharing :)

Yes, Duncan was definitely a "bellend villain." I had to look that up. Thanks Hicks! Learning British slang here. :D
