The Perdition Score by Richard Kadrey

I love Kadrey's books and I love this series. I've listened to most of this series (narrated by the awesome Mcloud Andrews). Sandman Slim kicks so much ass. Sure, I can't listen to it when the kid is in the car but that just makes it better.

Walkaway by Cory Doctorow
Rate this book

This book will appeal more to men than women--reading it was like every conversation I've had with a white, male, liberal arts student. Doctorow seems aware of his privilege, though, and at least at his signings takes pains to mediate it to some degr ...more

Terry Pratchett
“He loved the fact that if you got your customer laughing then you had their money in your pocket”
Terry Pratchett, Raising Steam

Neil Gaiman
“Nothing I had drunk had ever tasted like that before: rich and warm and perfectly happy in my mouth. I remembered that milk long after I had forgotten everything else.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Jeff VanderMeer
“The effect of this cannot be understood without being there. The beauty of it cannot be understood, either, and when you see beauty in desolation it changes something inside you. Desolation tries to colonize you.”
Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation

“She said not to worry-- that she had done so many things she regretted and perhaps we should both agree that we had sprung fully formed from the head of Zeus in about the year 2000”
Brian Kimberling

Jasper Fforde
“The trip back home was uneventful and over in only twelve words.”
Jasper Fforde, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing
