August 2011


V.E. Ulett is a long time resident of California, but spends most of her time in a romantic nineteenth century world of airships and adventure. When she isn't head down in a first hand account of capture by pirates, battle at sea, or experimental flight, V.E. is an ordinary Silicon Valley warrior. Rare leisure hours are spent with her own small Hell-Cats.

V.E.’s Recent Updates

V.E. Ulett and 117 other people liked Adam Dalva's review of Pride and Prejudice:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
"Sublime - unlike many books I loved as a teenager, it gets better and better with age, as the nuance and satire jumps off the page. "
Lowriders in Space by Cathy Camper
"Ridiculous and fun, a love story to lowrider culture! Three friends on a mission to customize the best car ever find their quest takes them in a most unexpected direction - into space!"
Maigret and the Headless Corpse by Georges Simenon
"A fun read, if you don’t mind it being about a headless male corpse found in a Paris canal. This is an inspector Maigret police procedural set in Paris in the 1950’s or so. There’s local color of the canal docks in Paris and café life.

Running with Sherman by Christopher McDougall

By turns touching, laugh out loud funny, and highly informative, Running with Sherman is excellent narrative non-fiction. Besides, it made me want a donkey.

“am for your kind and generous offer, but I must decline. My conscience urges me not to give up on the mission your government has entrusted to me, to help those women.” “Who are they to you?” Captain Thorpe burst out. “They are no your mother, or your sisters!” His passion surprised Miriam, though the injury and pain in his eyes should have warned her of a squall. “I know that. I do not venture into this because they are my sisters, or some fantasy of a better mother than the one I have.” Miriam paused a moment, a little shocked at that idea. “I do it because they are people, like you and me.”
V.E. Ulett, Golden Dragon

“Miriam gave him a wide-eyed look. It was never difficult to convince a man she was stupider than she was.”
V.E. Ulett, Golden Dragon

“Since in this heart he sought love of a friend, Know that in that heart love will be sustained.”
V.E. Ulett, Golden Dragon

“I don’t want to fade away, I want to flame away - I want my death to be an attraction, a spectacle, a mystery. A work of art.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

“Read. Read anything. Read the things they say are good for you, and the things they claim are junk. You'll find what you need to find. Just read.”
Neil Gaiman

“One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other.”
Jane Austen, Emma

“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.”
Jane Austen, Emma

“They were looking after themselves, living with rigid economy; and there was no greater proof of their friendship than the way their harmony withstood their very grave differences in domestic behaviour. In Jack's opinion Stephen was little better than a slut: his papers, odd bits of dry, garlic'd bread, his razors and small-clothes lay on and about his private table in a miserable squalor; and from the appearance of the grizzled wig that was now acting as a tea-cosy for his milk-saucepan, it was clear that he had breakfasted on marmalade.
Jack took off his coat, covered his waistcoat and breeches with an apron, and carried the dishes into the scullery. 'My plate and saucer will serve again,' said Stephen. 'I have blown upon them. I do wish, Jack,' he cried, 'that you would leave that milk-saucepan alone. It is perfectly clean. What more sanitary, what more wholesome, than scalded milk?”
Patrick O'Brian, Post Captain
