She leaned on the Sword, breath ragged.


The place where she was rang hollow and empty, alone. An alone-place. It

She fell on a stack of tiles, the ceramic crumpled underneath the weight. She folded her body around the Sword, rags falling over her thi...

Everything doesn't quite fire as well as it should, some of the satire is overly creaky - but I like it a lot better than other deconstructions of hero teams, and that art is fucking tops.

These books are so much damn fun. Excellent world building, magic systems that make sense, nerdy references, what's not to love? I'm docking the book a star just because it didn't have the required appearance of Inspector Nightingale and his elegant ...more

Screw the suspension of disbelief, this is a book about humans using Science to piss in Death's eye. You will get pumped up, you will cheer, you will enjoy it and keep flipping those pages faster and faster.
G. Adams made a comment on his status in The Martian
The Martian by Andy Weir
" Oh man, the humor is integral. If they make a 'serious' film I would absolutely not want to watch it. "

“Time and wave, sun and wind, night and fire, moons and stone. We walk through the world only once. Only one life is given by the Nameless. It is a gift, a burden, a challenge, a duty to not waste it. To serve the Highest. To the end of our road, with our Honor intact.”
G. Derek Adams, The Riddle Box

“The trader, Vernon Waters, was a man of no particular interest.

He made money. He sold things. He bought things. Coins and coffers may mourn him, but no other living soul would...

...Solitary, drab, and impervious like and ink slash in a ledger.

Let that be his balance.

A zero sum.”
G. Derek Adams, The Riddle Box

“We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The Labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. And where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”
Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger
