I'm actually reading this series in 2 volume omnibus editions (where you can see my proper reviews of the series, but I'm too lazy to add a link here), but I'm still adding and rating the single volume editions. More people seem to usually add/rate s ...more

This omnibus (containing volumes 1 & 2) equates to the first 4 episodes of the anime, and the anime is pretty faithful to what occurs in these two volumes. The art is great, in my opinion (I don't generally pay manga prices if the art doesn't app ...more

Michelle E. liked a quote
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
“...Grimacing, I plunged a hand into the fouled water to clear the clog, morbid curiosity drawing my youthful eyes to the gray globs of gore floating upon the surface. It was not horror that seized my imagination so much as wonder: sixty years of dreams and desires, hunger and hope, love and longing, blasted away in a single explosive instant, mind and brain. The mind of Erasmus Gray was gone; the remnants of its vessel floated, as light and insubstantial as popcorn, in the water. Which fluffy bit held your ambition, Erasmus Gray? Which speck your pride? Ah, how absurd the primping and preening of our race! Is it not the ultimate arrogance to believe we are more than is contained in our biology? What counterarguments may be put forth, what valid objections raised, to the claim of Ecclesiastes, "Vanity of vanities; all is vanity"?”
Rick Yancey

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
“We are slaves, all of us...Some are slaves to fear. Others are slaves to reason—or base desire. It is our lot to be slaves...and the question must be to what shall we owe our indenture? Will it be to truth or to falsehood, hope or despair, light or darkness? I choose to serve the light, even though that bondage often lies in darkness.”
Rick Yancey

Jonathan Stroud
“Death is fugitive; even when you're watching for it, the actual instant somehow slips between your fingers. You don't get that sudden drop of the head you see in movies. Instead you simply sit there, waiting for something to happen, and all at once you realize you've missed it.”
Jonathan Stroud, The Whispering Skull

John W. Campbell Jr.
“History does not always repeat itself. Sometimes it just yells, 'Can't you remember anything I told you?' and lets fly with a club.”
John W. Campbell Jr.

L.E. Modesitt Jr.
“You didn’t ask us about whether it was safe to take your troops out of the locial. You told us that was what you were doing. Your assumption was that Old Earth is perfectly safe unless you’re warned. Is deep space safe? Would you drop into the sun’s photosphere because no one warned you it would incinerate you? Nothing is perfectly safe. We don’t provide warning signs to protect you from yourselves. Try to remember that.”
L.E. Modesitt Jr., Adiamante

Mark  Lawrence
“Sixty beats of a heart would be enough. If I could hold them. Let them know I came for them no matter what stood in my way. It would be enough. Sixty beats of a heart past that door would outweigh sixty years in this world without them.”
Mark Lawrence, The Liar's Key

L.E. Modesitt Jr.
“Strive not for beauty of raiment, nor for stately dwellings…behold the lilac.”
L.E. Modesitt Jr., Gravity Dreams

Description: Smoke and Magics An original Story By Michelle Kobus This story was originally an entry in a contest with a 2,000 word limit. (It was a year long challenge on GR to write stories, reading books with certain covers etc, which I backed out of because I don't like being told what to read! LOL.) 1/21/15: I'm going to be expanding this story soon. Look forward to it! Written February 2013 1863 Words
