Is this for Real?

The following is a quick review of two books, 'The Case Against Reality' by Donald Hoffman, and 'Wholeness and the Implicate Order' by David Bohm.

I found Donald Hoffman's book, 'The Case Against Reality', to be extremely frustrating. He does make some good points, specifically in that what we see... Read more of this blog post »

Sally B. Sedgwick Sally B. Sedgwick's blog:

Intention

There are a few phrases, idioms, sayings that I hate, not only because I don’t like them, but because I think they’re destructive. “Everything happens for a reason.” “It was God’s will.” “We’re only given what we can handle.” I think these platitudes make us complacent, take away cause, and often...

A day of bumbles

Walking towards the front gate to make sure it's closed so the adventurous dog doesn’t leave the premises. Beside the drive some flax bushes, weeded around yesterday. A bumblebee flies past and towards the ground, disappearing down the edge of the bank near the base of a flax clump. No flowers at... Read more of this blog post »

We have rain! And I have knitting wool.

It's been a rather boring, pretty ordinary week around here. Boring to write about, that is. Mostly it was spent trying to find somewhere cool to hunker down. It's summer here in good old NZ, of course, and last week was hot. A 31, a handful of 28s and 29s. Hot enough for me, anyway. Humid at tim... Read more of this blog post »

Can we call it a story NOW...?

I had (past tense) half a story written, and half a story to go, for this open-call charity anthology I have been trying to craft a story for. The thing was, I had a rather good situation, one that fit the anthology's guidelines and had an exotic locale to boot. I managed to (finally!) figure out... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. 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
