Black Jack by Rani Manicka
"A different and unique read. Ms. Manicka is a master in twists and turns. Just when you think you have it figured out you get the rug pulled out from under you. I really enjoyed the mentions of The Matrix which is one of my favorite movies. Black..." Read more of this review »
Black Jack by Rani Manicka
"This was an unusual read. A long time lover of all things SF and F, and this was a slight step away from what I usually like. Still, it incorporated the metaphysical and speculative really well, and at times came close to paranormal fantasy.

“Flowers grow beneath her feet, but she is not dead at all. The years have not diminished the Rice Mother. I see her, fierce and magical. Stop despairing and call to her, and you will see, she will come bearing a rainbow of dreams.”
Rani Manicka, The Rice Mother

“Майка ми седеше край него ден и нощ. Понякога го гълчеше, понякога му пееше песни, които никога не бях я чувала да пее. Може би все пак тя го обичаше. Вероятно по природа си беше такава — като настръхнала. И сега си я представям — дребна фигурка, седнала край леглото, върху което се очертава тялото на татко, заобиколен от вечерните сенки. Облегната на рамката на вратата, подпряла петата на левия крак на прасеца на десния, я слушах като захласната как пее песни, които не знаех, че е скътала в себе си. Спомням си, тогава ми хрумна, че мама е като океан. Дълбока и пълна с неизвестни неща. Дори се боях, че никога нямаше да стигна до дъното му. Искаше ми се да съм ручей, който някой ден щеше да прерасне в река и някога да се влее в океана.”
Rani Manicka, The Rice Mother

“Cada uno de nosotros ha venido a la tierra con varias piezas de un puzle tan grande como el universo. Cada vez que conocemos a alguien, se las enseñamos de manera inconsciente para ver si las de esa persona encajan con las nuestras. Si no encajan, cada uno sigue su camino y no hay nada que hacer. Ay, pero si encajan... Ahí es donde empiezan la atracción, el odio, los celos, el amor, el dolor y el
aprendizaje.”
Rani Manicka, The Japanese Lover
