""The name the man had chosen, it turned out, was Thirty-Six All-Terrain Tundra Vehicle, a revelation that produced in both Mahit and Three Seagrass a kind of stunned silence."

There should be a word for that feeling of delight, early on into a book, when you realize that you're going to really like this one. (Teixcalaan names include a number and an inanimate object, but this newly minted citizen chose...poorly.)"

"Our Native heroine, upon being presented with this gem of a shirt:

"Emblazoned across the chest is a dream catcher, and in the center of the dream catcher, a wolf's head, fur limned in purples and grays, eyes shining in the morning light.

'What is this shit?' I ask."

Perfect response to one of the most visible symbols of Native American cultural appropriation and commodification."

Faithful Place by Tana French
"French’s Dublin Murder Squad series is growing on me. I somewhat liked the second book in the series The Likeness (my review) enough despite its plot holes to start the third. I liked this book more. I’d call this story an Irish, literary, police..." Read more of this review »

"Fast-moving, moving from a straight-forward confrontation to a search and rescue. There are a lot of similarities with the Kate Daniels series: a heroine with a predilection for violence over other kinds of problem-solving, a young woman with a ca..." Read more of this review »
Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone
"This was a lot of fun. The plotting was bonkers but tight, the magic was cool and the scope was great. Sure, none of this was at all how lawyering works, but I wish it was more like this, so let's let it ride. A small note, I was not feeling terri..." Read more of this review »

T. Kingfisher
“Do you have a name?” asked Gerta.  “I do,” said the raven.  Gerta waited. The raven fluffed its beard. “I am the Sound of Mouse Bones Crunching Under the Hooves of God.” ”
T. Kingfisher, The Raven and the Reindeer

C.S. Lewis
“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.”
C.S. Lewis

H.G. Wells
“Science is a match that man has just got alight. He thought he was in a room - in moments of devotion, a temple - and that his light would be reflected from and display walls inscribed with wonderful secrets and pillars carved with philosophical systems wrought into harmony. It is a curious sensation, now that the preliminary splutter is over and the flame burns up clear, to see his hands lit and just a glimpse of himself and the patch he stands on visible, and around him, in place of all that human comfort and beauty he anticipated - darkness still.

'The Rediscovery of the Unique' Fortnightly Review (1891)

Paolo Bacigalupi
“Pure data. You don’t believe data—you test data.” He grimaced. “If I could put my finger on the moment we genuinely fucked ourselves, it was the moment we decided that data was something you could use words like believe or disbelieve around.”
Paolo Bacigalupi, The Water Knife

Faith Hunter
“We don’t poison. We shoot, stab, cut, slice and dice, eviscerate, disembowel, and decapitate. Sometimes shoot and blow up our enemies. We’ve been known to bury our dead in the swamp. But we don’t poison. Poison is wussy.”
Faith Hunter, Dark Queen
