    That was who I was forgetting.

    This is all actually a good motivator for me to finish my book.

    I might post a draft of my prologue in the VIP later today for comment.

    Do yourself a favor & pick up a John Rain novel & a Jack Reacher novel when you're done. You'll thank me.

    Quoted for truth. I remember that Internet arguement where he took credit for Frank Shamrock's win over Basito because he sent some kind of yakuza hoodoo to Rutten's hotel room...and Bas came on there and confirmed that he did get some kind of Shinto devilry shipped to his hotel room, though he claimed it was before his fight with Jason and that the sheer Bas Rutteness of Bas Rutten meant the evil sorcery helped Delucia not at all.

    SM Stirling's Emberverse series: Pretty decent Western swordplay and armed combat.

    In fact, it wasn't until near the end of the third book there was a mention of the word "dojo" as a point of comparison, and Japanese fencing wasn't referenced until the fourth book. And hand-to-hand fighting, when it occurs, usually has "combatives" as a reference point, not any Asian system.

    I laughed at the Aikido in the Dresden Files as much as I laughed at any of the sly jokes about Contemporary Fantasy. Harry Dresden is brain candy, like the WH40K books. You shouldn't take it too seriously.

    Not always. DeLucia did manage to beat Masa Funaki while Funaki was just trying to "carry" him. With a win like that after just training grappling for a few months, I don't blame him for believing in magic.

    So anyway, what are these Dresden Files books everyone's talking about? Is Harry Dresden like Harry Potter? Is the Aikido chick Hermione?

    It seems I've started a Trollshido Heresy. The Legions are taking sides and amassing across the Galaxy in their great battleships capable of transversing the Immaterium. Even now, Astartes are anointing their holy bolters and chainswords with lubricating oils. Battle plate is being freshly painted, and oaths of moment are being written and sworn...
