Onward…

Started two new novels today, both of them supernatural horror.

Things shared on Nov. 18ths

I am constantly surprised by Democrats who say the candidate in 2020 shouldn’t be the country’s most popular politician. Okay, I could’ve ended that sentence after “Democrats”. - Chandler famously couldn't remember who killed the chauffeur in Big Sleep. My theory: Joe Brody killed him to get the...

What’s the Point of Reading the Bible, Anyway?

For many people, growth in Christ is primarily growth in knowledge of Bible facts and doctrines. Maybe you love digging deep in the Bible, unpacking original meaning, listening to sermon podcasts, and reading books. And I’m right there with you; I love knowledge.

Два огромных джекпота одновременно!



Дорогие друзья, на этой неделе у вас есть шанс поиграть в две большие лотереи одновременно.
Во-первых - в лотерее Eurojackpot назрел джекпот в 90 миллионов. Они разыгрываются всегда в пятницу. Мы, кстати, уже месяц наблюдаем за этой лотереей, потому что джекпот там давно уже большой. Но до позапрошлой недели выигрыши в... Read more of this blog post »

The Nature of Rules: Conformity, compliance and innovation often do not get along

The project I am currently working on, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business is really an idea I’ve been exploring my entire life. It’s on my mind because I’ve spent the last week enjoying all the various Star Wars mythologies that are spawning out of Disney, the new Mandalorian tv series, the video...

The Secret Feminist History of Shakespeare and Company

“Certain people are meant to be midwives—not mothers of invention. Sylvia was one,” wrote Noël Riley Fitch, author of Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation (1983), in the most recent introduction to a collection of Beach’s letters. Yet to characterize Beach as merely a “midwife” and to remember her primaril... Read more of this blog post »

Trust Yourself, Trust Your Choices


Trust yourself. Only you can live your life.
Only you can taste your victories.
Only you can suffer the sting of your defeats.
Make your own choices, and accept your own consequences -
for better or worse.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you...

A recent visit to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam revealed a surprising highlight.

Success by Martin Amis

One of my favorites of his, along with MONEY and EXPERIENCE. A little less excited after re-reading, though. His style remains breathless and brilliant and over the top. Much to love. But the incest and sex stuff is borderline icky. Read more of this blog post »

Me encantaría conocer a Bill Bryson.

Un tipo ingenioso, culto y tremendamente ameno, con ese...

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.

Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
