Ok read. Authors maintain tension with many cliffhangers, which get a bit annoying, as many are formulaic and melodramatic, and thus have predictable outcomes.

Living the Secular Life by Phil Zuckerman
“when we compare these types of nations, we see that the religiosity/secularity correlation holds true the world over: the poorer, more chaotic, more troubled countries tend to be among the most religious, while the wealthier, more stable, more well-functioning countries tend to be among the most secular.”

My first Moses McGuire book. A lot of ultra violence slimed with all-out depravity -- got to love the driven main character who rides the intense thriller action. Didn't think I would find another book as deviously exciting yet horrifying as Charlie ...more

Another page turner, always good to have Harry on the case, and this time he gets a partner that matches him in drive and detective ability.

Wallace Stevens
“God and the imagination are one.”
Wallace Stevens

W.H. Auden
“Follow, poet, follow right
To the bottom of the night,
With your unconstraining voice
Still persuade us to rejoice;

With the farming of a verse
Make a vineyard of the curse,
Sing of human unsuccess
In a rapture of distress;

In the deserts of the heart
Let the healing fountain start,
In the prison of his days
Teach the free man how to praise.”
W.H. Auden

Martin Luther King Jr.
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Steven Pinker
“Fiction is empathy technology.”
Steven Pinker
