Autumn Adventures

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.

Black Easter: Faust Aleph-Null  - James Blish The book ends with three English words and a mathematical symbol commonly known as Aleph-naught. Or, in Rabbinic/Judaic folk lore, a reference to the reward given to the Aleph by starting the Ten Commandments and also begins the three words that Make up God's mystical name in Exodus: I Am That I AmThe revelation (pardon the pun sans spoilers) presents a compelling argument for the theological hypothesis raised by Blish. I read this short novel in less than a day, a matter of hours, but I fear it will haunt my thoughts for many weeks to come. A strange, surreal journey to say the least. And upon further research, find yet another book (The Damnation of Theron Ware: Or Illumination by Harold Frederic) I should read because: The name "Theron Ware" was later used by author James Blish for his "villain" in the novel Black Easter. In this novel Ware brings about the death of God and the triumph of Satan. The book was adapted into a play in 1979 by a Troy University theatre professor and produced by the school's drama department. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Damnation_of_Theron_Ware
