    Sounds like a fun book! Love kaiju.

    I would so like crypto to be outlawed everywhere. It’s insanely environmentally destructive, and it’s pointless.

    • In all the talk of how unstable it is, ripe for this kind of corruption, I never read enough about the devastating environmental effects. That ALONE should be the reason to get rid of it, but some people see a chance to make big money.

    As a longtime Corrie fan, I’m excited to see “Kelly” as Ruby Sunday on Doctor Who.

    Thanks for the link to the “Scorpica” book – I read Macallister’s “The Arctic Fury” and really liked it.
