Content warning regarding some key plot points of both The Player Of Games and Snow Crash .

I’m not sure which book is more popular. If you’re running in cyberpunk circles, Snow Crash is heavily lauded; even used as somewhat of a framework for post-cyberpunk literature. That is, cyberpunk which struggles and subverts the tropes that were established during the movement, or first wave of...

A little less even because of the jumping around in time to follow all the stories. While some were OK, a couple stood out, like Dragonfly, and made the collection a good and substantive addition. I liked interrogating some of the assumptions and dis ...more

It took me a bit to acclimate to how different this story is but once I did I think I appreciate it more. There is a heavy depth and exploration I’ve not seen in fantasy in this; steeped in a perspective never quite articulated and unkempt. There are ...more

Laurie Stevens, The Dark Before Dawn

Richard K. Morgan
“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.

Things I Should Have Learned by Now, Volume II”

Alaya Dawn Johnson
“And so Ikne walked away from his idyll and got a job sharpshooting for the Perambuco guerrillas in Salvador. It wasn't an easy life, and one day he got shot in the stomach by a lead bullet. The bullet fell in love with him, of course, but she couldn't stop the slow bleed of his gastric cavity into his pancreas, and she felt terrible, which was too bad, since he'd known all along what would happen.
He died; he always said he would.
Someone had to take out the bullet.”
Alaya Dawn Johnson, The Summer Prince

Tow Ubukata
“Balot was gripped by the Doctor's words, not even nodding now. Choice--right. She felt the two words spinning around like hands on a clock, then snapping into position together. A magic moment. Magic that would transport Balot to a different place. In the interior workings of choice and right a number of complicated cogs spun together. The doctor was one of those cogs.”
Tow Ubukata, Mardock Scramble

“Anger didn't do it justice. It was rage and hurt and grief and something hot enough, brutal enough to melt a man's conscience. Whatever damage I was fighting, he knew his own demons and saw them when he looked at me.
I'd never felt so close to him as I did in that moment.
And I never wanted to beat his head against the table so much.”
K.C. Alexander, Necrotech
