I would love to hang out with the Elves in some enchanted forest like Lothlorien. But, every forest is beautiful and enchanted. I would want to go somewhere with no earthly equivalent, like Niven's Ringworld, with its arch, the strange inverted horizon. (less)

The Case for Klobuchar

The trial of Donald Trump currently running in the Senate is likely to lead to an acquittal, in spite of the evidence against the president. Democratic Leadership is hoping that impeachment galvanizes their base to not only defeat Trump in November, but to take back the Senate as well.

Keep in mind that it’s very hard to beat an incumbent president. Even a mediocre president like George W. Bush... Read more of this blog post »

This book is strange and marvelous. I read it through quickly about five years ago. (I had borrowed the book from the library, so I was on a deadline.) A few months ago, I acquired a copy at a used book store, and in January, I started reading it ...more

Cassandra Clare
“Ah,” said a voice from the doorway, “having your annual ‘everyone thinks Will is a lunatic’ meeting, are you?
“It’s biannual,” said Jem. “And no, this is not that meeting.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

R.A. Salvatore
“If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer.”
R.A. Salvatore

J.R.R. Tolkien
“We set out to save the Shire, Sam and it has been saved - but not for me.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

J.K. Rowling
“Do you see, Harry? Do you see the flaw in my brilliant plan now? I had fallen into the trap I had foreseen, that I had told myself I could avoid, that I must avoid.”

“I don’t —”

“I cared about you too much,” said Dumbledore simply. “I cared more for your happiness than your knowing the truth, more for your peace of mind than my plan, more for your life than the lives that might be lost if the plan failed. In other words, I acted exactly as Voldemort expects we fools who love to act.

“Is there a defense? I defy anyone who has watched you as I have — and I have watched you more closely than you can have imagined — not to want to save you more pain than you had already suffered. What did I care if numbers of nameless and faceless people and creatures were slaughtered in the vague future, if in the here and now you were alive, and well, and happy? I never dreamed that I would have such a person on my hands.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Neil Gaiman
“The best thing about writing fiction is that moment where the story catches fire and comes to life on the page, and suddenly it all makes sense and you know what it’s about and why you’re doing it and what these people are saying and doing, and you get to feel like both the creator and the audience. Everything is suddenly both obvious and surprising… and it’s magic and wonderful and strange.”
Neil Gaiman
