Not my favorite of Moore's work, but not bad. I liked the idea of him exploring the Noir motif in 1940s San Francisco, but the story had too many threads that either didn't make sense or went off the rails -- like the snake narrator and a lot of aspe ...more

It took me a few chapters to get into this Caribbean mystery novel, to get a feel for the author's style, the characters, and the tropical setting, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. I already started the next book in the series, Jamaica Me Dead ...more

James P. Blaylock
“He’d given up squid merchanting when he’d found that the creatures inhabited his dreams, all leggy and cold.”
James P. Blaylock, Homunculus

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Andy Weir
“He’s stuck out there. He thinks he’s totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man’s psychology?” He turned back to Venkat. “I wonder what he’s thinking right now.”

LOG ENTRY: SOL 61 How come Aquaman can control whales? They’re mammals! Makes no sense.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

Arthur C. Clarke
“1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Arthur C. Clarke
