My primary computer is my IBM T20 thinkpad, running Debian unstable. It’s hooked up to the rest of my home network through a wireless connection. Last week, every thing went south. First, because my wife has been having a lot of trouble getting a good connection to the wireless network from her computer, I upgraded […]
I’d blown my budget when this was out in hardcover, so I bought it as soon as it was out in trade. I’m hoping this is as good as Snowcrash.
Sequel to Greg Bear’s Darwin’s Radio. Waiting for me to be in a softer, less belicose mood, to read. &lt;map><area><area></map><img>
Another Hugo award winner (1965) I never got to before.
Zelazny near the height of his power, before Amber took over. OK, I liked the first few, and they were nearly as good as, “This Immortal”, or “Creatures of Light and Darkness”, but not nearly as good as “Lord of Light” or his shorter works, collected, in “The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of […]

Sequel to A Cavern of Black Ice. J.V.Jones last few outings have been excellent, and I’m looking to pick up where we left off with this series. Although, I’ll admit, not quite enough to go dig up the last and reread it first. But enough to buy it the first time I spotted it in […]
