My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.
I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas). I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.
Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry. Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.
Read in Sep/Oct 2011
I read Scalzi's reboot of Piper's Little Fuzzy one right after the other. And I'm hard pressed to tell you which one I liked better. I really loved the addition of a dog to the story. I also appreciated the renewed emphasis on environmental consequences to disrupting and/or destroying ecological systems for the sole purpose of reaping (or ripping or raping ... take your pick) natural resources for profit. And John Scalzi just has a flare for funny. I laughed out loud many times.
Read both of them. You won't regret it.
