Too many to mention!

Maybe it's the suffocating loneliness that comes from working in isolation or how you tell your friends and family you're a writer and they stifle their laughter before asking why you don't have a proper job

Actually, the best thing about being a writer is creating - that initial burst of a story weaving its way through a page without having to think about. It's an unadulterated rush, and it's glorious.(less)

"Damn, this book was good.

ASIDE from the fact that its setting is so refreshingly unique, the pacing is extraordinary. And by 'extraordinary' I mean that once it gets rolling--and it gets rolling almost right off the bat--it never lets up. Serious..." Read more of this review »

“Even infinity has its limits.”
Steven McKinnon, In Memory: A Tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett

“The cube contained knowledge of every person born and every battle fought; every kiss enjoyed and every secret kept; every word that was ever uttered and every thought that was ever conceived, from The Beginning until The End of Time.
“Looks a bit shit,” said Sid.”

“As much as he loved Old Earth artefacts, it was tremendously frustrating at times to know that it wasn’t possible to prove the original purpose of so many of them. Spotting an object he had puzzled over for the past two years, he stopped at its shelf, picked up the crumpled piece of plastic, and unfolded it until it had the approximate shape of a woman. She could be inflated by blowing air into an attached valve. Although he did have his suspicions as to what she was for (and he blushed even thinking about it—he described her as a ‘portable statue of a surprised female’ to potential customers), he still yearned to know whether he was right or not.”

“Old Earth rotated slowly and majestically on its axis, reassuringly unperturbed by recent events.”
