Scott McCloskey has searched from the eastern United States all the way to Osaka, Japan, but has uncovered no Elvish rings of power, nor magic swords to hold aloft. Blame books for teaching him never to give up. In the meantime, he takes breaks here and there to pen the almost plausible adventures of siblings Theodore and Marie Ellsworth in The Gossamer City, as they are dictated to him by the diminutive gnomes with hummingbird wings that have been flitting unceasingly about his bedroom at night since he was your age.

Scott lives with a loving wife who puts up with his idiosyncratic bent, two adorable girls to whom he sings scratchy jazz tunes at night, and several Russian Wolfhounds. His first book, The Goldenwealth Light (Book 1 of the com

(Review appearing for the first time on Rainhandbooks.com!)Oooh, timecrimes!

Well, the title and the blurb were enough to get me interested in this title even if it hadn’t been shared with me in return for an honest review. If I picked this volume up off a shelf at Barnes Read more of this blog post »

Whiplash by Morgan Quaid

Whiplash is a ‘sharp’ story—it goes right for the throat with neither apology nor restraint both in content and style. Short, piercing sentences, darker vocabulary choices, basic metaphors that don’t leave you much to ponder, and a narrative that div ...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

Thomas Paine
“I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.”
Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

Sigmund Freud
“Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires.”
Sigmund Freud, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

Lewis Carroll
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Thomas Jefferson
“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”
Thomas Jefferson
