A charming read that really could be about anything if the subject were inserted whenever the word painting is mentioned. Truly a wonderful book filled with a soft philosophy that should be the goal of all.

I like me a good western every now and then; it reminds me of my grandfather. Parker's Cole and Hitch series fit my needs perfectly: smart, fast-paced, enough violence without becoming gratuitous, and realistic depictions of what the Old West was rea...more

The creepiest thing about this book is that my copy has a child's scribbling throughout it. A very unexpected (but appreciated) element to a story about a community losing its identity through lose of physical and emotional and familial possessions....more

This book was so good for the first half...then it tanked horribly for about the next 1/4 or so and never really recovered. Although I will say that I enjoyed how the novel played out at the end. If it wasn't for that 1/4 of the book I would make a b...more

“Smart people sometimes get stupid, but stupid people never get smart.”
Don Winslow

Harlan Ellison
“Did you have one of those days today, like a nail in the foot? Did the pterodactyl corpse dropped by the ghost of your mother from the spectral Hindenburg forever circling the Earth come smashing through the lid of your glass coffin? Did the New York strip steak you attacked at dinner suddenly show a mouth filled with needle-sharp teeth, and did it snap off the end of your fork, the last solid-gold fork from the set Anastasia pressed into your hands as they took her away to be shot? Is the slab under your apartment building moaning that it cannot stand the weight on its back a moment longer, and is the building stretching and creaking? Did a good friend betray you today, or did that good friend merely keep silent and fail to come to your aid? Are you holding the razor at your throat this very instant? Take heart, comfort is at hand. This is the hour that stretches. Djan karet. We are the cavalry. We're here. Put away the pills. We'll get you through this bloody night. Next time, it'll be your turn to help us.
"Eidolons" (1988)”
Harlan Ellison

Stephen Colbert
“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.”
Stephen Colbert
