The Apex Book of World SF 4 by Mahvesh Murad
"This was a great book, one of the best anthologies I've read. I liked the first and third books in this series, but the second book and this book are really great, I highly recommend them. I can get pretty impatient when I'm reading anthologies. I..." Read more of this review »

I don’t remember what the first story I read by Michael Swanwick is. But I do remember the feeling I got as I read it.

It’s the same feeling I got when I first read stories by Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link and Lucius Shepard. That amazing, wow-this-is-talen

"posted by Neil Gaiman I've loved Robert McGinnis's covers for a very long time. I remember the first one I was aware of (it was the cover of Ian Fleming's  James Bond book DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, when I was about 9. They put the film poster on the ..." Read more of this blog post »

Oh my. What to say about Lo Lee Ta?

The writing is frantic, fantastic and genius. The subject matter on the other hand, is not. Yes, it's a book about a pedophile, who steals away his lovely Lolita and has her way with her, eventually falling in love.

Albert Camus
“I had only a little time left and I didn't want to waste it on God.”
Albert Camus, L'Étranger

J.R.R. Tolkien
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Albert Einstein
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”
Albert Einstein

Daniel Woodrell
“The heart's in it then, spinning dreams, and torment is on the way. The heart makes dreams seem like ideas.”
Daniel Woodrell, Winter's Bone

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
