Jordan Robinson was 25-years-old and living in Clarksville, MD, between DC and Baltimore. He worked a desk job and wrote in his free time (sometimes, during work too).

As of March 2017, Jordan is 26-years-old still living in MD. Now jobless, he is pursuing his dream of writing for a living (and no longer assisting people with copy/pasting IT help over the phone). Will he succeed? Or will he crash and burn, having to crawl back to kiss his old boss' boots?

Beyond the above, he graduated from the University of Maryland in 2013 with a “useful” Criminal Justice & Criminology degree. He recently reinvigorated his love for reading through books like The Name of the Wind, Lies of Locke Lamora and Mistborn. Jordan has two younger bro

Jordan Robinson and 59 other people liked Celeste's review of Recursion:
Recursion by Blake Crouch
"You can find this review and more at Novel Notions.

I’m so amazed by Blake Crouch. With Dark Matter, he enthralled the reading world with a wild plot and breakneck action. With Recursion, he proves that Dark Matter wasn’t a fluke. Crouch delivered a level of intensity that I’ve rar..." Read more of this review »
Jordan Robinson and 222 other people liked Petrik's review of Recursion:
Recursion by Blake Crouch
"Recursion has become the first sci-fi standalone to be included in my favorite shelves.

As many readers probably did, my first experience with reading Crouch’s work was for Dark Matter. I was super impressed by it and after hearing that the author has a new sci-f..." Read more of this review »

Who We Are and How We Got Here by David Reich
"
This was the book that I wanted the last book I read on the topic to be. Concentrates on the science, lucidly written, although probably best not read when one is too fatigued or sleepy. Its explanations seem as simple as possible but no simpler,..." Read more of this review »

Joe Haldeman
“Bad books on writing tell you to "WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW", a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.”
Joe Haldeman

Pierce Brown
“Oy, shitheads”—Sevro squawks over the com unit in my ear—“if you’re done sightseeing or humping or whatever the hell you’re doin’, it’s time to tuck in.” —”
Pierce Brown, Morning Star

Pierce Brown
“You and I keep looking for light in the darkness, expecting it to appear. But it already has.” I touch his shoulder. “We’re it, boyo. Broken and cracked and stupid as we are, we’re the light, and we’re spreading.”
Pierce Brown, Morning Star

R.F. Kuang
“The subject of today’s lesson will be plants.” He sat down, pulled off his satchel, and emptied the contents onto the grass. Out spilled an assortment of plants and powders, the severed arm of a cactus, several bright red poppy flowers with pods still attached, and a handful of sun-dried mushrooms. “Are we getting high?” Rin said. “Oh, wow. We’re getting high, aren’t we?” “I’m getting high,” said Jiang. “You’re watching.”
R.F. Kuang, The Poppy War

R.F. Kuang
“What happened to you was common in the era before the Red Emperor, back when Nikara shamans didn’t know what they were doing. If this had continued, you would have gone mad. But I am here to make sure that doesn’t happen. I’m going to keep you sane.” Rin wondered how someone who regularly strolled through campus without clothes on could say that with a straight face.”
R.F. Kuang, The Poppy War
