  • An Indian Desi on the Storytree

    An Indian Desi on the Storytree

    The flamboyant dilettante called me by name. I was shocked. My eyes danced over what was visible of his face, most of which was hidden behind the masks that we all wear. I didn’t recognize him. How did he know my name? A few moments later, I realized that I was still wearing my nametag. […]

  • Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds

    Alastair Reynolds has been one of my favorite authors ever since I discovered him. In recent years, with his departure from the Revelation Space universe, his work hasn’t been as good. He was a master at hard science-fiction, creating intricate storylines that blew me aways.It was with high hopes that I anticipated his Poseidon’s Children […]

  • The Harry Bosch Novels By Michael Connelly

    It’s not like Michael Connelly is a new name in detective novels, but it took the Amazon TV series Bosch for me to take another look at this prolific author. Years ago, I had read Bloodwork. It must have been around the time that the Clint Eastwood movie came out. Since I had enjoyed the […]

  • 2014 in Books

    2013 in books was lost due to a HD malfunction, but I have been recording the books that I read on my other computer. I had my ups and downs in reading, and I did spend time rereading books that I had already read before. I was able to find most of Roberto Bolano’s novels […]

  • 2012 In Books

    Well, I’m about 3 months late, but rest assured, I still keep tabs on what I read. I’ve had my ups and downs last year, voraciously reading on my iPad for months on end, then falling into TV series for weeks before returning to books once again. In 2011, I read 85 books. I didn’t […]

  • My Girlfriend Is Blind by Mima Simić @ Firmuhment

    Beautiful story by Mima Simić over @ the Firmuhment. It’s hard to imagine how life would be without sight.

  • Amanda Hocking & Indie Writing

    I was pretty surprised when I read about this author, who’s been selling e-books like hotcakes. Amanda Hocking writes fiction, not tech or self-help books, which is even more interesting. Anyway, here a writeup by Eli James that I liked. Some of books have been optioned for film.

  • Dogkill

    It’s a little past midnight, and a man gets out of a courtyard. He’s got a dog in tow and he’s walking quickly towards a nearby park. The dog follows his master obediently on the leash. It’s a French bulldog, all muscle and all clown. The owner is pulling the dogs along. He sees a […]

  • La pluralité des mondes

    This is a great story by Justin E. Smith. I recently read Transition by Iain M. Banks, and it made me think of this. {via 3QD}

  • LA Times Reviews The Girl Who Kicked The Hornest’s Nest

    The LA Times reviews Larsson’s latest book, which came out a while ago in French, but will be soon released in English. Simply put, Salander is a deeply radicalized feminist, portrayed in a manner designed to test the sympathies of a largely liberal-minded audience, the attention of which is diverted by the blur of his […]
