Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
"Originally reviewed here @ Angieville

So, cards on the table? This is my favorite cover of the year. Actually, my favorite book design of the year full stop. The pages are all edged black, which is just exquisitely pleasing on a level I would never..." Read more of this review »
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
"First in what is obviously going to be a series, Six of Crows grabbed me by the throat and didn’t let me go until the end. In fact, some scenes were so white-knuckle tense that I actually had to put the book down and go do something else just to b..." Read more of this review »

Control Point by Myke Cole
"I didn't like the book. Straight off the bat, the cover lies. The tacticool attire on the cover plays exactly no role in the story. No magical character uses long arms -- only pistols, and only as backup weapons (for as-yet unclear reasons). The c..." Read more of this review »
Control Point by Myke Cole
"In a more-or-less modern world, some people start unexpectedly developing powerful magical abilities and the military becomes very, very interested. The unique angle here is that the author has worked for many years as a military contractor, and h..." Read more of this review »

Kim Stanley Robinson
“they were now their own unavoidable experiment, and were making themselves into many things they had never been before: augmented, multi-sexed, and most importantly, very long-lived, the oldest at that point being around two hundred years old. But not one whit wiser, or even more intelligent. Sad but true: individual intelligence probably peaked in the Upper Paleolithic, and we have been self-domesticated creatures ever since, dogs when we had been wolves. But also, despite that individual diminuation, finding ways to accumulate knowledge and power, compiling records, also techniques, practices, sciences

possibly smarter therefore as a species than as individuals, but prone to insanity either way...”
Kim Stanley Robinson

“You can hand out condoms, drop bombs, build roads, or put in electricity, but until the girls are educated a society won’t change.”
Greg Mortenson

W.S. Merwin
“with the night falling we are saying thank you
we are stopping on the bridge to bow from the railings
we are running out of the glass rooms
with our mouths full of food to look at the sky
and say thank you
we are standing by the water looking out
in different directions

back from a series of hospitals back from a mugging
after funerals we are saying thank you
after the news of the dead
whether or not we knew them we are saying thank you
in a culture up to its chin in shame
living in the stench it has chosen we are saying thank you

over telephones we are saying thank you
in doorways and in the backs of cars and in elevators
remembering wars and the police at the back door
and the beatings on stairs we are saying thank you
in the banks that use us we are saying thank you
with the crooks in office with the rich and fashionable
unchanged we go on saying thank you thank you

with the animals dying around us
our lost feelings we are saying thank you
with the forests falling faster than the minutes
of our lives we are saying thank you
with the words going out like cells of a brain
with the cities growing over us like the earth
we are saying thank you faster and faster
with nobody listening we are saying thank you
we are saying thank you and waving
dark though it is”
W.S. Merwin

Czesław Miłosz
“I imagine the earth when I am no more:
Women's dresses, dewy lilacs, a song in the valley.
Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born,
Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights.”
Czesław Miłosz

Dorothy L. Sayers
“We are much too much inclined in these days to divide people into permanent categories, forgetting that a category only exists for its special purpose and must be forgotten as soon as that purpose is served.”
