I remember reading the forum threads on this book when it first came out, and the excitement ended up nearly at a fever pitch. At the time I didn't really give it that much thought since I had fallen out of love with Exalted, but when my interest in ...more

The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov
"Asimov foresees the climate change debate
29 May 2012

The title of this book is a part of a longer title, which is used to split up the three sections of the book: Against Stupidity the Gods Themselves Contend in Vain'. I believe that that is actua..." Read more of this review »

Resources exist to be consumed. And consumed they will be, if not by this generation then by some future. By what right does this forgotten future seek to deny us our birthright? None I say! Let us take what is ours, chew and eat our fill.

Whereas ZZT was an exploration of the community that grew up around a quirky ANSII game and the tools that let its fans build their own worlds, EarthBound is a much more focused text. It's primarily about Baumann's life: his relationship with his sev ...more

Count Zero had a very hard time holding my attention. Normally a book of this size would only take me a few days to read, but I kept putting it down and leaving it for a while after reading a chapter or two because I just didn't care about what was h ...more

H.P. Lovecraft
“Throw a stick, and the servile dog wheezes and pants and stumbles to bring it to you. Do the same before a cat, and he will eye you with coolly polite and somewhat bored amusement. And just as inferior people prefer the inferior animal which scampers excitedly because someone else wants something, so do superior people respect the superior animal which lives its own life and knows that the puerile stick-throwings of alien bipeds are none of its business and beneath its notice. The dog barks and begs and tumbles to amuse you when you crack the whip. That pleases a meekness-loving peasant who relishes a stimulus to his self importance. The cat, on the other hand, charms you into playing for its benefit when it wishes to be amused; making you rush about the room with a paper on a string when it feels like exercise, but refusing all your attempts to make it play when it is not in the humour. That is personality and individuality and self-respect -- the calm mastery of a being whose life is its own and not yours -- and the superior person recognises and appreciates this because he too is a free soul whose position is assured, and whose only law is his own heritage and aesthetic sense.”
H.P. Lovecraft

“Yeah but I don’t know how to make myself go there. Maybe it might never happen again. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!”
Breehn Burns, Best of Catbug: My Name is Catbug, What's Yours?

C.S. Lewis
“When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis

Henry Jenkins
“...Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by the folk.”
Henry Jenkins
