You get to put ideas into other people minds.
Also, you are creating something that did not exist before.
And you're helping people have a good time, forget their problems for a while, or maybe you show them a way to tackle those problems.
It's sitting alone in a dark room, making up imaginary people and inventing stories, and influencing people's lives with those inventions.(less)

Odds and Ends #15

The 15th Odds and Ends has just been posted to my Patrons, just in time for Easter. This week: a great post-cyberpunk thriller for 99 cents (in Italian!), a stack of science books for real cheap, a whole world dominated by birds, a collection of Hobbit recipes, an article about the late Gene Wolfe and a short movie about the end of the world.
Because it’s good to be my patrons.

Davide and 1 other person liked Alan Clark's review of The Ministry of Thunder:
The Ministry of Thunder by Davide Mana
"The Ministry of Thunder is a great action-adventure, set in pre-WWII China, full of political intrigue, sexy characters, and a healthy dose of the uncanny thrown in to make it truly weird and wonderful. I highly recommend it."
