Stacey’s Recent Updates

We Are Not Such Things by Justine van der Leun
"A powerful and troubling story. This will stay with me for a long time. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is a fascinating and complicated subject, and it took tremendous effort even if it fell short in certain ways.
I'm also reminded of thi..." Read more of this review »
Things We Lost in the Fire by Mariana Enríquez
"Pondering the creepy, dark stories filled with sudden disappearances and hints of the supernatural, I realized I was looking through the wrong end of the telescope after I skipped ahead to the translator's note. These stories are a part of the his..." Read more of this review »
White Rage by Carol Anderson
"I remember gratitude that Anderson used the phrase “white rage” in her column in ’14 that started to give the context expanded here after a police officer shot an unarmed Michael Brown six times in the middle of the street until he was dead. Still..." Read more of this review »
White Rage by Carol Anderson
"Next time some ignorant, self-satisfied fool tells you "All lives matter," hand them this book and say, "Clearly they don't and haven't."

Not only a concise and direct explication and indictment of white backlash to black progress since the Civil W..." Read more of this review »

I don't have the words for how much this novel touched my heart. On surface, it's fully sci-fi, with Bio-tech, weaponry, climate and eco- disaster, genetically modified creatures, etc. But like the best of the genre, it defies its simple categorizati ...more

I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett
“She heard him mutter, 'Can you take away this grief?'
'I'm sorry,' she replied. 'Everyone asks me. And I would not do so even if I knew how. It belongs to you. Only time and tears take away grief; that is what they are for.”
Terry Pratchett

Mort by Terry Pratchett
“Goodbye,” Mort said, and was surprised to find a lump in his throat. “It’s such an unpleasant word, isn’t it?” QUITE SO. Death grinned because, as has so often been remarked, he didn’t have much option. But possibly he meant it, this time. I PREFER AU REVOIR, he said.”
Terry Pratchett

All the stars, all the hearts.

Usually when I read something I intend to review, I start taking pictures of passages I might want to share. Except first, I realized it was too many pictures, then I started dog-earing all the pages that had something t

Mark Twain
“You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, burning bushes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need help?”
Mark Twain

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Mother Night

George Carlin
“Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!”
George Carlin

Arnold Lobel
“Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.”
Arnold Lobel

Neil Gaiman
“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 6: Fables and Reflections
