“worldwide riots when the first AIs gained sentience,” he said. “And don’t get me started about what humans have done to each other through history. Believe me, it’s the same thing all over again.” “But they might have killed themselves along with the rest of us.” “As long as they can preserve what they think of as humanity, they don’t care.” “Then why put other human lives in danger in the first place?” “If you don’t agree with them, you don’t count as human anymore.”

“But suppose one doesn't quite know which one wants to put first. Suppose," said Harriet, falling back on words which were not her own, "suppose one is cursed with both a heart and a brain?"

"You can usually tell," said Miss de Vine, "by seeing what kind of mistakes you make. I'm quite sure that one never makes fundamental mistakes about the thing one really wants to do. Fundamental mistakes arise out of lack of genuine interest. In my opinion, that is.”

Laurie I missed your last giveaway. I truly want to read your "Alice" books. Is "Alice in Underland" the first one? I love remakes of "old" stories. I've written a couple myself. My students loved my rewrite of "The 3 Little Pigs," especially the end. Want to read it? It's short but funny. I have to get it off my computer at school , though. Let me know.

Also, let me know when you are doing more giveaways. The types of books you write are the types of books I love the most.

(I see I missed the last giveaway. Boo hoo... )


Tamara Just ordered Alice's Adventures in Underland: The Queen of Stilled Hearts :D and can't wait for it to come in the mail! =]
