For me, the way forward has often involved a sideways stumble into unrelated territory—or so it seemed at the time.

But as the years passed, I began using the knowledge gained from these detours, and I realized I had been blazing a trail for future use. So now, it’s easier to hold off on frustration and keep the faith (I prefer the word “trust,” because to me that’s a more personalized state of min

I thoroughly enjoyed this incredibly original novel by Mark Miller. Throughout the narrative, he unites multiple unrelated fields--the military, relationships, high school, the eighties and more--with the underlying absurdity that weaves in and out o ...more

I truly enjoyed this lighthearted, freewheeling collection of bizarre Uber stories. Passengers run the gamut—bizarre, sexy, drug-addled, and, of course, hilariously drunk—but it's also got some emotionally substantial twists at the end. Great read! ...more

This was a well-written short that explored what it means to be human, as well as what it means to be dehumanized for the "collective good." I enjoyed the lingo and the well-paced balance between exposition, action, and tension. ...more

A satisfying conclusion to an entertaining series! Pongratz transitions smoothly from horror into sci fi epic, expanding on the backstory and developing the characters at the same time. I enjoyed the cultural worldbuilding and flow of description.

Quotes by Kent Wayne  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There were fewer bonds more powerful than having been young, strong, and miserable together.”
Kent Wayne, Approaching Shatter

“All throughout his life, he'd been rewarded by sticking to a simple philosophy: refuse to be weak. Push as hard as you can. Pain and hardship were not only inevitable, they made you stronger. Fuck everything else. What didn't make you strong wasn't just useless—it was a waste of time.

Occasionally, someone would ask him why he punished himself as harshly as he did. The only answer he could produce was a condescending scoff, or a blank look.

Why not?
Kent Wayne, Approaching Shatter

“Nothing felt right. The whole world seemed loose and pliable. He couldn't shake a gut-wrenching feeling that reality's underpinnings were breaking away.”
Kent Wayne, Approaching Shatter
