The big lie of American capitalism is that corporations work in their own best interests. In fact they’re constantly doing things that will eventually bring them to their knees. Most of these blunders involve toxic chemicals that any ...more

Not bad. This didn't start terribly well - thoroughly generic fantasy with a terribly unrealistic world map and a fairly typical angsty orphan protagonist.

But it goes to a reasonably interesting place and sets up what could be a good series. I'll

This was fun! Strange seeing the characters not already friends, but a really excellent addition to the Campaign 1 story.

Thru-Hiking Will Break Your Heart by Carrot Quinn

It's winter and I want to go outside.

This book was pretty good! It starts very strongly, lots of beautiful description of the Sierras and lots of really lovely heartfelt talk about the friends and fellow hikers the author met along the trail.

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Kim Stanley Robinson
“They needed to be an independent state, sovereign perhaps, semiautonomous at least. Semiautonomy might be enough, given the realities of the two worlds; semiautonomy would justify calling it a free Mars. But in the current state of things they were no more than property, and had no real power over their own lives. Decisions were made for them a hundred million kilometers away. Their home was being chopped up into metal bits and shipped away. It was a waste, it benefited no one except a small metanational elite who were running the two worlds like feudal fiefdoms. No, they needed to be free— and not so that they could cast loose from Earth’s terrible situation, not at all— rather, to be able to exert some real influence over what was happening down there. Otherwise they were only going to be helpless witnesses to catastrophe. And then sucked down into the maelstrom after the first sets of victims. That was intolerable. They had to act.”
Kim Stanley Robinson, Green Mars

Emily St. John Mandel
“First we only want to be seen, but once we’re seen, that’s not enough anymore. After that, we want to be remembered.”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Kim Stanley Robinson
“That's libertarians for you — anarchists who want police protection from their slaves.”
Kim Stanley Robinson, Green Mars

Peter S. Beagle
“... some things aren't any good unless they're shared. Sitting up all night would be pointless if somebody you loved wasn't sitting up with you, picking out music to play and helping you kill the bourbon. Walking by yourself in the rain is for college kids who think loneliness makes poets.”
Peter S. Beagle, A Fine and Private Place
