Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie
" This book picks up right where the previous one left. In fact, the only reason to split this tale between two books I see was the length. There are three major plot-lines in here.

The first one is a defense by Union forces of its northern territory... " Read more of this review »

Barb S. and 26 other people liked Baelor's review of Ringworld (Ringworld #1):
Ringworld by Larry Niven
" I started this book expecting an awesome experience -- it won the Hugo AND Nebula awards, after all.

Too bad it was a hot mess.


The smile is because the book was lighthearted.


What to say of Niven's prose, other than that it is horrible? The dialog... " Read more of this review »

“You should not need anything to wake up. If you can't wake up without it, it's because you are either addicted to caffeine, sleep deprived, or a generally unhealthy slob. It may seem like the end of the world to give up your daily dose, especially if your rely on Starbucks as a good place to meet men. But it's not heroin, girls, and you'll learn to live without it.”
Rory Freedman, Skinny Bitch: A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous!

Stanisław Lem
“But the worst of it was, all the third-rate poets emerged unscathed; being third-rate, they didn't know good poetry from bad and consequently had no inkling of their crushing defeat.”
Stanisław Lem, The Cyberiad

Stanisław Lem
“Have it compose a poem- a poem about a haircut! But lofty, tragic, timeless, full of love, treachery, retribution, quiet heroism in the face of certain doom! Six lines, cleverly rhymed, and every word beginning with the letter S!!” [sic]….
Seduced, shaggy Samson snored.
She scissored short. Sorely shorn,
Soon shackled slave, Samson sighed,
Silently scheming
Sightlessly seeking
Some savage, spectacular suicide."

("The First Sally (A) or The Electronic Bard"
THE CYBERIAD)”
Stanisław Lem

Eminem
“I don't care if you're black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you. Simple as that.”
Eminem

Stanisław Lem
“...it is easy not to believe in monsters, considerably more difficult to escape their dread and loathsome clutches.”
Stanisław Lem, The Cyberiad
