Starfighters of Adumar by Aaron Allston is my favorite book. Oh, I know, your favorite book is supposed to be something profound, touching, and preferably literary, but nah. My favorite is a Star Wars (Legends…I save that for another time) book.
It was like one of the Plagues of Egypt.
Not one of the very dramatic ones, like boils or water turning into blood. It was the one with the frogs. Frogs everywhere.
I grew up in another, more picturesque desert, so I have known since I was small that there is a kind of frog that hibernates under the dry ground until it rains. When it does, they claw their way free from the earth and get to the business of eating and propagating until it grows to dry, whereupon they burrow again to hibernate. However, while I knew about this, I had never seen it before.
As it turns out, when rain does come to MacGregor Range, it is frog spring break.
I’ve been a fan of Gears of War for a long time. I love the gameplay, the characters, I love the story, the world’s aesthetic, everything. I was unable to play Gears of War 4 until just recently, and I have to say it was a blast. If you’re looking for a fun game, pick up Gears 4 for sure.
Why do I like it so much? Aha, now I get to do my nerdy rambling in response to a question you probably didn’t ask and wouldn’t for any reason whatsoever!
