I read this second book in the trilogy before reading the first, Robopocalypse. I have a feeling that with specfic in particular, this is a goof. Alas, I goofed. Take my review with as much salt as you think it needs.

So, Robopocalypse is a fairly aud...more

Full disclosure: I know Ben and read this book in MS form, before it was published. I haven't read the published version yet (just got it, fresh off the press!) so my comments are a little dated and details may not match with the final version.

I didn't realize when I grabbed this as an audiobook loan from the library that it was from 2005. Oh how the Western world has changed! When Savage wrote this, he and his boyfriend Terry couldn't legally wed in the state of Washington. I listened in...more

Disclosure: I got this book as a prepub at ALA, but ended up not reading the print version. Instead, I listened to the audio book from my library. Spoilers throughout!

Joss Whedon
“Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.”
Joss Whedon

Ray Bradbury
“Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he'll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer."

[1967 interview]”
Ray Bradbury

Joss Whedon
“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.”
Joss Whedon

Ray Bradbury
“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.”
Ray Bradbury

Joss Whedon
“There's a time and place for everything, and I believe it’s called 'fan fiction'.”
