It's a few years from now, NASA is a ghost of it's past glories. The public sector decides it's time to get back into space and plans an audacious trip to the moon. Now if the book was just about that, I think it might have been good. Instead, the st...more

It's silly. And that is exactly the point. If you like Christopher Moore-type satire, this is in the same vain and lots of fun. Lionel Fenn is a pen name for a well known Sci-Fi writer and tosses these books of as a way to let of steam and enjoy poki...more

Refuge Omnibus Edition by Jeremy Bishoo

This is one of those 'omnibus' books where various authors pick up the story, adding their own style and embellishments. In this case, each author attempts to out-horror the previous -- with some clever results. This is a little like reading college...more

Pretty good bathroom book! Not meant to be offensive, but this collection of forgotten moments in American History are each about 4-6 pages long and about the right length for—well, you know. Andrew Carroll went on a cool road trip, visiting interest...more

Savage Planet by Stephen Coonts

This is part III. The first book was silly but fun. I mean, what person doesn't wish they could find a saucer and then learn to fly it all over the place while government and big corporations go batshit?

The sequel is more of the same. Escapist fanta...more

Douglas Adams
“Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Hermann Hesse
“Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.”
Hermann Hesse

Pablo Neruda
“I should like to sleep like a cat,
with all the fur of time,
with a tongue rough as flint,
with the dry sex of fire;
and after speaking to no one,
stretch myself over the world,
over roofs and landscapes,
with a passionate desire
to hunt the rats in my dreams.”
Pablo Neruda

Steve Martin
“Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.”
Steve Martin

Walt Whitman
“O you singer, solitary, singing by yourself—projecting me;
O solitary me, listening—nevermore shall I cease perpetuating you;
Never more shall I escape, never more the reverberations,
Never more the cries of unsatisfied love be absent from me,
Never again leave me to be the peaceful child I was before what there, in the night,
By the sea, under the yellow and sagging moon,
The messenger there arous’d—the fire, the sweet hell within,
The unknown want, the destiny of me.”
Walt Whitman
