Revolution World; Si-Fi / Urban Fantasy Blend For The Libertarian

Katy Stauber knocked my socks off with this one
Revolution World is a bigger than Texas, Texas story
There is a little something for everyone here
Gaming, Genetic Engineering, Vampires
Arrogant Homeland Security and Military types
An enjoyable love story
Revolution
What more could you ask for?
No heavy lifting here, but lots of fun!

Texas story, Grassy music
Allison Krauss & Union Station
Paper Airplane
Allison Krauss is quite the story
Started winning fiddle contests at age 10
Signed with a record label at age 14
And where oh where did that voice come from?

Stop What You Are Doing And Read This Book!

Social Science Fiction at its best
The human condition In Your Face
Hidden on a false background

Moxyland is so #@!$%^&*
Lauren Beukes owns me!
What a frenzy to read
The language will find its way
Our lexicon will change, no doubt about it!
You want to know about terrorism?
You want to know your place in the world?
This book is so sneaky
I thought I was reading a very hip book
I felt like I was out there on the edge of hipness
"Kinda Hear, Kinda Now, Kinda Hip, Kinda Wow!"
(Thank you Frank Zappa)
I was so wrapped and rapt up in this read.
I did not see it coming

You must read the afterword
Titled "Stem Cells" "Extra"
Anything you may have missed
Will be illuminated

I am totally creeped!

Richard

Lost Gate Is So Much More Than Some Of The "Critics" Said

Thank goodness for book reviewers
They help in picking a books
Thank goodness I often don't listen
Thank you, I'll make my own mind up
Perhaps my mind is making me up
Sci-Fi & Fantasy, ya gotta love it

The Lost Gate is a great opener for the series
The Mithermages by Orson Scott Card
The young lad is an outcast among his people
He has no magic
The obvious arrives
He is a Gate Mage
On the run and being hunted
His own people, no less
Want to put him down like a broken dog
Fun Fun Fun!

Been stressed for time to write
Will try to find more time
Much to talk about

Music in my grateful psyche
Lucinda Williams newest
Blessed

Awash amid anxiety, angst and acerbity
One foot in front of the other
Not looking over my shoulder
I abide

Regards,
Richard

Nathan Lowell May Well Be Channeling Robert A Heinlein

Book one Quarter Share trips the light fantastic
The Golden Age of the Solar Clipper. Trader Tales Series
Nathan Lowell has captured my R.A.H. heart
Young teen suddenly orphaned
Must join a space ship crew to survive
The corporate planet has given him the boot
With a little help from the Union Hall he gets a job
Signs on with a solar clipper and works hard
Bright boy does good!
Delicious!

Music a must to hear, Wow!
