Book Review: Me2

(Cross-posted at Homomojo) Frustrating.  If one word could describe my experience with Me2, the novel by M. Christian, “frustrating” would have to be it.  To be fair, I’ve had a lot of distractions over the past couple of months, so perhaps part of the experience is my fault.  To accomodate this fact, however, I tried…

Quickies:

Botox May Move From Face To Brain (Although whether anyone who injects botulism into their face actually has a brain in the first place may be up to debate . . .) I’m currently reading both Duma Key by Stephen King (and it appears to be one of his best works to date, truly) and ME2…

Coming Soon . . .

I should soon be receiving a copy of ME2 by M. Christian, published by Alyson Books, and hope to have a review up both here and at Homomojo within a week or two.  Because I just know you’re all waiting on pins and needles for my opinion before you make any purchase whatsoever. 

Kill Yer Darlings

You’ve probably noticed the lack of regular posting for the last couple of weeks.  Without going into too much sordid detail, I thought I’d touch on that just a bit.  I usually compose most of my blog writing at night, when Norm is working, then post it sometime the next day, taking only a few…

Potter Books Banned

This story strikes me as a bit hypocritical: . . . last month, students found that their favorite series had “disapparated” from the school library, after St. Joseph’s pastor, the Rev. Ron Barker, removed the books, declaring that the themes of witchcraft and sorcery were inappropriate for a Catholic school. While I don’t take kindly to…

A Money Question

I like to think that I support my favorite authors, as well as my local bookstores.  I’m constantly recommending authors and books in practically every other conversation that I have.  I recommend to friends that they go here or there, buy this historical book or that novel . . .but in all honesty I should…

I’m Overbooked

This past weekend was wonderful for Norm & I.  We went with his sister, brother-in-law, and their kids to a horse show about an hour away from our house.  Annie, his sister, brought her two miniature horses along to show, and Norm brought one of our horses, Cinnamon.  He also helped Annie show her horses,…

Prayers To Broken Stones

It could easily be said that I fawn over Dan Simmons.  Or at least over his writing.  Hyperion remains my favorite Sci-fi novel of all time, followed closely by Fall of Hyperion.  My review of Illium was quoted in my book club’s monthy catalog (whoop-te-do), and I was nearly apopleptic with glee when, thanks to…
