It is so nice to read a well-written ya book with a gay protagonist. I am now working my way through Dale Peck's other books. Can't believe I only now discovered him. Fantastic!

Darkover Landfall by Marion Zimmer Bradley
"Two thirds into this book and I'm setting it down for good. While it begins an interesting enough crash-landing and survival story, there is too much relentlessly sexist material here for me to sit by and endure. Perhaps I was expecting something..." Read more of this review »

“One thing I've learned is it's better to be addicted to things than people. You get hooked on a thing and if someone takes it from you, you can find another source. Only people can really hurt you. Only people can push you out into the cold permanently.”
A.M. Riley, Immortality is the Suck

“Arrogance kills creativity.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“We can fix it in post.”
A.M. Riley

“The personal, as everyone’s so fucking fond of saying, is political. So if some idiot politician, some power player, tries to execute policies that harm you or those you care about, take it personally. Get angry. The Machinery of Justice will not serve you here – it is slow and cold, and it is theirs, hardware and soft-. Only the little people suffer at the hands of Justice; the creatures of power slide from under it with a wink and a grin. If you want justice, you will have to claw it from them. Make it personal. Do as much damage as you can. Get your message across. That way, you stand a better chance of being taken seriously next time. Of being considered dangerous. And make no mistake about this: being taken seriously, being considered dangerous marks the difference - the only difference in their eyes - between players and little people. Players they will make deals with. Little people they liquidate. And time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal execution with the ultimate insult that it’s just business, it’s politics, it’s the way of the world, it’s a tough life and that it’s nothing personal. Well, fuck them. Make it personal.”
Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon

“There's things that happen in a person's life that are so scorched in the memory and burned into the heart that there's no forgetting them.”
John Boyne

“People who shop at Barnes and Noble voted Ulysses the best novel of the last century, and who's to tell them different? There was a point when I would have liked to, but apparently that's just because I'm a bitch.”
