Alex’s Recent Updates

Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes
"I really enjoyed this book. It was great to learn a bit more about Shonda since I admire her work. I enjoy hearing how she has really embraced who she is and is enjoying her life. It is a good reminder to be authentic to who you are and that every..." Read more of this review »

Even though I have been given permission to do so, I can’t quite bring myself to write and draw in this book. It stresses me out. That said, this would be a fabulous gift for someone who could scribble and derive that intended benefit. Regardless, ...more
Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman
"What a gem of a book! Einstein's Dream contains dozens of short meditations/ imaginings/ dreams--all of them with differing degrees of whimsy--on the nature of time. Reading it, I was reminded of Gabriel Garcia Marquez or--and this is closer to th..." Read more of this review »
Alex is on page 141 of 416 of Tales of Dungeons and Dragons: There are some odd attribution choices in this book. For example, “The Challenge from Beyond” was only attributed to Howie, not by the full round robin of participants. Also, neither of the two pieces that Bloch worked on included both participating authors. So while there’s some scholarly work, there also some unusual blind spots.

In the foreword, John F.D. Taff summarized this well: “Succinctly put, long fiction writing is constructing a skyscraper, while short fiction writing is cutting the facets of a diamond. Alan Baxter is an expert gem cutter.”

This book is like a semester of literature class to combat erasure. Not only do we have a wide array of fiction by women, we get an exploration of their contribution to poetry, journalism, editing, and art. The essay from Kathleen Goonan at the back ...more

H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
H. P. Lovercraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Douglas Adams
“The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, the effect of which is like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Clark Ashton Smith
“in the days when the world begins to bleach and shrivel, and the sun is blotched with death. Socialist and Individualist, they'll all be a little dirt lodged deep in the granite wrinkles of the globe's countenance.”
Clark Ashton Smith

L. Frank Baum
“That proves you are unusual," returned the Scarecrow; "and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz
