A few come to mind in regards to making me think: Hyperion series from Dan Simmons. I love the work from Neil Stephenson. Dan Simmons introduced me to Keats and that inspired the poems in the Scattered Voices from my hand.

Nationalistically? Well as a scientist I need to observe, so I guess I get inspired by things I notice and remember. Small things, words in discussions, some feelings going with it. Inspiration and ideas are plentiful. Voicing it in the right way is sometimes as easy as breathing, sometimes as hard as running chin-deep in mud.

Yes I am reading that

Hello Goodread people.

I love this site and was a little engaged, but now I will be here more often.

I am reading the other poems in the Scattered Voices now, not to show the picture of the book 700 times on my profile, but hé, its 200 pages of great poetry and I do not know all of it yet.

So that is why am reading it now. Bear with me, I will read soon some other books.

Greetzzz.

All the World's a Simulation by Stephen Moles
"Moles is a stimulating cross between Borges and Barthelme, if one can slap a comparison on his peculiar, elliptic, non sequitorrential prose, a puckish explorer of literature as refracted through a technoillogical prism. His work is unfurling like so" Read more of this review »
