"I think it's utterly charming and impressive how she weaves traditional stories with Indigenous history and modern science. She opens the book saying that she's going to do that, which sounds like a mess waiting to happen, but it's really not. It's ...well braided together." Jan 01, 2023 12:08PM

Philip Plait
“I am using the word theory as a scientist means it: a set of ideas so well established by observations and physical models that it is essentially indistinguishable from fact. That is different from the colloquial use that means "guess." To a scientist, you can bet your life on a theory. Remember, gravity is "just a theory" too.”
Philip C. Plait, Death from the Skies!: These Are the Ways the World Will End...

“When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching -- they are your family. ”
Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher
“Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.”
Jim Butcher, Vignette

Brandon Sanderson
“You see, that is the sad, sorry, terrible thing about sarcasm.

It's really funny.”
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians
