I would give this 4.5 if I could.

This spare, elegant classic of Catalan science fiction is taught in schools. On one level, it is a story of two young people (9 and 14) who survive an apocalyptic alien attack and start civilization over in the ruins

Amy Sturgis is on page 89 of 307 of A Suggestion of Ghosts: If you strike the “young,” this could be my new bio statement:
“My book-shelves were filled with words upon spiritualism, manuals on magnetism, and novels, when they were weird and mystic, and so I despised artificial life and its restraints, and was, in fact, a most useless and uncanny young lady...”

I won't rate this, because I have an essay ("'Some Lingering Influence in the Shunned House': H.P. Lovecraft's Three Invitations to Dark Tourism") in this anthology. I will say, however, that editor Kathryn N. McDaniel's cutting-edge focus on virtual ...more

The elegantly simple prose of Where the Dead Sit Talking contrasts effectively with the complexity of this wrenching slice of a life story. Set in rural Oklahoma in 1980s (not far from my hometown of Tulsa), the novel explores the difficult coming-of ...more

God by Reza Aslan
"An extremely interesting, easily-read, and throughs-provoking book, Aslan takes us through the history of, not religion, per se, but the history of why there’s religion, and how man has created god, over and over again, in his own image.

H.P. Lovecraft
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.”
H.P. Lovecraft

Arthur Conan Doyle
“Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, His Last Bow

Edgar Allan Poe
“From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Alone

J.K. Rowling
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I give you this toast: To the Hobbits. May they outlast the Sarumans and see spring again in the trees.”
J.R.R. Tolkien
