My initial reaction to the beginning of The Big Sheep could be described simply - "what?" Here we have Keane, a phenomenological investigator (holistic detective) who has been called in by Esper Corp to find a missing sheep. It is a strange place..." Read more of this review »

“These days she tended to think of herself as a Heisenbergian Christian: she believed in the broad outlines of Christianity, but she was unable to pinpoint the specifics of her creed. She was OK with the wave; it was the particles that tended to escape her.”
Robert Kroese, Mercury Falls

“...And I can't promise anything, you understand, but there's always a chance he'll want to torture your boss anyway. Just recreationally, I mean."
"Wow, that would be terrific," I said.”
Robert Kroese, Starship Grifters

“This puzzling discrepancy prompted the development of the controversial cosmological theory known as the Strong Misanthropic Principle, which asserts that the universe exists in order to screw with us.”
