  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I was reading the entry of Fantastika in the SF encyclopedia when I came across this title. What! what, what. It looks like something written for the Laundry Files. HA!

  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    I use my computer to read ebooks. I have a mac but most of what is available is also on PC or smartphone. I use different readers depending on how it looks for that book. Calibre can handle most formats,...

    Charlie, I turned on the TV and there was Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, and it was scary as hell. I instantly thought of Mhari when I saw her. Firing Line with Margaret Hoover: Series Premiere Margaret Hoover: The GOP...

    Charlie, I've tried to skip along in the thread to avoid spoilers until I've read the book, so I missed your comment @11 about the LaundryVerse and Peter Pan. - Go for it. No matter how you end the sequence...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    HA! When retyping the example sentence I typed "here" instead of "her". I love typos in my stuff. They are like the glitch in the Matrix when changes are made. The Matrix - Deja vu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_KmNZNT5xw...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    There's a few other typos as well; "complementary" for "complimentary" in one place I remember. That is an example of words that are spelled correctly, and are too damn close for comfort. HA! Go to Amazon, select the book, then...

  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    There is no such thing as a good deity. Once you have reached that level of power if you are invoked to solve problems, you will keep solving them. It's like eating peanuts. Try just eating one. You can't help...

    Yes! Gutenberg. That would be a good start. Logic states that if they are in French, then they are the original. Why does my mind resist the idea that they are sitting right there ready to be read. It's the...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I have an odd question: I got into a discussion on another blog about Jules Verne and how the english translations were messed up, i.e., butchered. I was wondering. Does Amazon France carry all of Verne's books in the original...
