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.

Resistance is ...

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1) - Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams

I'm coming very late to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy party that is canon for most science fiction aficionados.  So late, in fact, that the phrase 'Resistance is useless' just doesn't have the same ring to it, the same impact, it might have had pre-Borg.  I'm more partial to the chilling unison legion-like 'Resistance is futile' myself.  Still, it's comedic in the context of Adams' novel.
