The Black Cloud by Fred Hoyle

This book feels almost post-modern with its shifting tones, off characterization, insertion of hard science (including actual equations and diagrams) before collapsing into almost surreal semi-science, and mismatched blend of deep thinking next to sc ...more
All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld
"Atmospheric writing and a compelling story told in an interesting format (England chapters moving forward in time and Australia chapters moving backwards), but ultimately quite dark for my taste. And it often felt to me like there were too many th..." Read more of this review »

Blow the House Down by John Blackburn
Rate this book
Clear rating
John Blackburn novels are All Over the Place(tm). This is a feature, not a glitch, in most cases but in this novel the constraint to largely real world antics backed by 1960s race relations in Britain leads to a confused novel bordering on offense at ...more

“[August] Derleth tried to prevent any other (non-Derleth-approved) writer from writing Cthulhu Mythos stories.If Lovecraft had wanted bad writers to avoid Cthulhu Mythos stories, he wouldn’t have written back to August Derleth.”
Kenneth Hite, Cthulhu 101: A Beginner's Guide to the Dreamer in the Deep

Tim Curran
“All he had to do was think of Linda at home, eight months into it, knowing that he was going to be a father and that straightened him right out. Feelings are just feelings, but families need to be fed.”
Tim Curran, Blood, Bones and Bullets

Terry Pratchett
“The kicking and punching stopped only when it became apparent that all the mob was attacking was itself. And, since the IQ of a mob is the IQ of its most stupid member divided by the number of mobsters, it was never very clear to anyone what had happened.”
Terry Pratchett, Maskerade

Terry Pratchett
“Granny Weatherwax was firmly against fiction. Life was hard enough without lies floating around and changing the way people thought. And because the theater was fiction made flesh, she hated the theater most of all. But that was it—hate was exactly the right word. Hate is a force of attraction. Hate is just love with its back turned.”
Terry Pratchett, Maskerade

Terry Pratchett
“people went looking to find themselves and what they found was somebody else.”
Terry Pratchett, Raising Steam
