A world with an interesting political set up, interesting technology and some solid military tech but that's about it. The main character is a placeholder allowing you to see the world but not giving you any reason to care at all about him. The autho...more

Ernest Hemingway
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway

Patrick Rothfuss
“Roses! I swear you men have all your romance from the same worn book. Flowers are a good thing, a sweet thing to give a lady. But it is always roses, always red, and always perfect hothouse blooms when they can come by them.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

John Scalzi
“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
John Scalzi

Junot Díaz
“In order to write the book you want to write, in the end you have to become the person you need to become to write that book.”
Junot Díaz

“Many people hear voices when no one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.”
Margaret Chittenden
