Too Long for a Tweet, Too Niche for a Facebook Post

I just started reading Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch.  The premise is, so far, that the various supernatural creatures of good and evil are managed by the Night Watch, which tries to push things towards Good, and the Day Watch, who push toward Evil.  Rather than open warfare, though, there's just the general acknowledgment that they're too different agencies working toward preserving a general balance.  There's something fundamentally Russian about taking the battle between good and evil and turning it into an ill-running bureaucracy.

Later Days.
