Bradley Horner is an artist.

Smoke and blood often come pouring out of his ears as he writes. This causes his wife some little consternation and the household budget requires a slightly heavier investment in paper towels.

This is not an insurmountable problem.

The rest of his time is spent raising his daughter and teaching her to love books as much as he does.

They have both learned that they are especially delicious on the BBQ.

Over the years, careful naturalists have tried to model and compare his behavior against other wild specimens of Artist-Sapiens.

To be sure, the similarities do exist, but certain stark differences eventually confound them.

This, also, is not an insurmountable problem.

The naturalists are also good on the BBQ.

Artists

It's very hard being an artist. A lot of the time it's like being invisible if you're not just ignored.

Truth. Maybe it's different for some people, but for the rest of us, we either get skins of stone and perform our art in the dark or we pretend (or believe) that it is a calling on par with the priesthood... without the fringe benefits.

I've made very little on any of these novels. Maybe it is bec Read more of this blog post »

A ton of Charles Stross books focus on economics, but it's not limited to just him. A lot of SF does. Heinlein is great for it, but short of doing a long survey of works, I could recommend some like Neptune's Brood, The Foundation Trilogy, Rule 34, Cryptonomicon, or even Dune if you do a careful reading.

message 3: by mark

mark monday Do likes count as communication?

eh, not really. although I do appreciate them of course!

the main reason I put that in my friend request question is because I don't like having too many goodreads friends so from time to time I go on a friend deleting spree. I always keep the friends I recognize (unless they are inactive or have somehow annoyed me). so to stay my friend, I have to recognize you, and one of the ways to do that is to become a real person to me by occasionally communicating with me. however the other way to do that is by regularly writing reviews that I enjoy. you definitely have the latter covered!


Robert Thanks for accepting my friend request, Brad.
