Sandy’s Recent Updates

Artificial Condition by Martha Wells
"Although not quite as surprising in its delightfulness as the first Murderbot book, I still loved this story a whole lot. Murderbot goes on more adventures and makes some great new friends -- I especially hope we see more of ART in later books."
Sandy D. and 1 other person liked KJ's review of The Trove:
The Trove by Tobias S. Buckell
"Rounding up from 3.5. Fun retelling of Treasure Island in space, with a female protagonist and other interesting changes from the original. My only real complaint is that it needed a good copy-edit; I noticed a number of errors that distracted me..." Read more of this review »
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
"Amazing, and yet so very dark. You think you're reading about a scrappy, overachieving, neglected child who is going to military boarding school as part of a hero's quest, and then everything goes sideways. I really liked the similar-to-Chinese se..." Read more of this review »

Stephen Colbert
“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.”
Stephen Colbert

Sharman Apt Russell
“The women in the kitchen sang: Sarampión toca la puerta. Viruela dice: ¿Quién es? Y Escarlatina contesta: ¡Aquí estamos los tres! The cook would sometimes shout a little madly, “Sing it again!” And the women would sing again: Measles knocks at the door. Smallpox asks, Who’s there? And Scarlet Fever replies: All three of us are here!”
Sharman Apt Russell, Teresa of the New World

Gary Paulsen
“She was brilliant and joyous and she believed- probably correctly- that libraries contain the answers to all things, to everything, and that if you can't find the information you seek in the library, then such information probably doesn't exist in this or any parallel universe now or ever to be known. She was thoughtful and kind and she always believed the best of everybody. She was, above all else, a master librarian and she knew where to find any book on any subject in the shortest possible time.

And she was wonderfully unhinged.”
Gary Paulsen, Mudshark

Jennifer Kaufman
“For me, reading is so much more. Books teach you how other people think, and what they're feeling, and how they change from ordinary beings to extraordinary ones. Often they are so appealing and intelligent, you'd rather spend time reading about them than doing anything else.”
Jennifer Kaufman

“...One of the reasons so many women say "I'm not a feminist but..." (and then put forward a feminist position), is that in addition to being stereotyped as man-hating Amazons, feminists have also been cast as antifamily and antimotherhood.”
