Apocalypse Pretty Soon : Travels In End-Time America - book cover picture

Alex Heard's adventures in the borderlands of culture remind me of the joys of listening to radical idealists of any stripe. I could feel the presence of each of his subjects, whether dreamer of a new Atlantis or channeler of benevolent, alien intelligence, or cross-bearing transcontinental walker. Each individual is a revelation in the spectrum of humanity, and most of them are endearing in distinct and peculiar ways. Heard is not unkind to either his subjects or his readers. He is a translator between "here" and "there," whose writing is so fluid and flawless that these strange world views slide into one another leaving the reader wondering how preferrable his own reality is in comparison. Read this book and be, by turns, amazed, entertained, touched, and more eager to engage the world and try out other lenses on reality.

Shelby Foote is the Greatest!

Civil War: A Narrative (3 Vol. Set) - book cover picture

"The War" above all, is writing at the highest level. Mr. Foote is first a reader, and fine reviewer of books. His credible views on Literature have guided my reading list for years. Shelby Foote's Civil War: A Narrative (of which I have a signed copy) is wonderful to read because it is a masterpiece written by a professional. If only his writing would some how continue. We readers look for Two Gates to the City to continue the flow of his smooth layed-back narrative "War". He is the Greatest!

Interstellar Anthropology


Book title: The Engines of God
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Engines of God - book cover picture

In the Engines of God, Jack McDevitt weaves together a series of familiar science fiction motifs to create a mystery novel on a grand scale. Like Arthur C. Clarke's classic Rendezvous with Rama, the story of a vast alien spacecraft that enters our solar system that enters our solar system, providing astronaughts with a brief glipse of otherworldly splendor before departing, McDevitt's novel is concerned with the potential wonders of interstellar anthropology.

The success of McDevitt's novel is in his strong depiction of the alien culture of Quaraqua, as seen through its artifacts and texts. His depictions of the translated fragments of their writings, and their artwork, ring with a poetic authenticity that is at once beautiful and mysterious.

Diana Gabaldon is truly an excellent author! She is able to create characters that are very vivid and real and intertwine many events and characters into a constant chain of excitement and interest that keep the reader enthralled until the very last word! More than mere romance, this book is masterpiece that combines historical details and real life that makes you hold your breath. I can't wait to finish the series so that I can start the series over! (The series follows in this order: Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, and Drums of Autumn. Also, Diana is now working more books to add to the series.)

Homo Faber (Harvest Book) - book cover picture

This book fell into my lap when I needed it to. I was studing in Germany and looking for meaning in anything. I was looking for direction and I wanted answers. Not unlike the protaganist, Herr Faber. However, our outlook was, and stil is very different. It gave me a way to look at why things happen the way they do. It made me wonder about the way one decision we make can reflect on the outcome of something seemingly unrelated. On top of making me think about coinidences, it is a great read. I must say though, the German version is much better than the translation. The English is not as artistic of a read, but the ideas remain the same.

A day by day look at Thoreau

Walden: Complete, Authoritative Text With Biographical and Historical Contexts, Critical History, and Essays from Five Contemporary Critical Perspectives (Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism) - book cover picture

"Oct. 22nd, 1837. 'What are you doing now?' he asked, 'Do you keep a journal?'-- So I make my first entry today."

Thus begins Thoreau's Journal, made up of more then two million words and covering about twenty-five years of his life. No other work of Thoreau's better exhibits his discipline as a writer and his devotion to the natural world. In the Journal can be found the fragmented foundations of masterpieces such as Walden, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, The Maine Woods, and Cape Cod. But what is perhaps more interesting to a reader of Thoreau's Journal are his thoughts and insights on topics such as friendship, love, religion, nature, bravery, heroism, war, slavery, the art of writing, and, most important to Thoreau, the art of living. Anyone with any interest in Thoreau will find his Journal to be an invaluable aid in understanding and following the life of one of America's most profound prose writers

Robot Builder's Bonanza (Tab Electronics) - book cover picture

I am a robotics researcher, currently pursuing my PhD and working as the director of a community-based iniative offering free courses to the general public at all levels. This is one of only two books I recommend to our students, and I can't recommend it highly enough.The coverage of the material is balanced and well-presented, and more than this, it is genuinely exciting; it is this that will rub off on the reader. It is above all a "can-do" book, and will encourage readers who are new to the field to actually have a go at building their own robot.If you are a young beginner in robotics, or a cynical old professional in the field nearing retirement, this book will do much to inspire you.

Darker Than You Think - book cover picture

I'm very happy to see Tor return an old favorite of mine to print -- Jack Williamson's novel of shapeshifters, witches and the seductive power of evil. I don't use the term "classic" lightly, but DARKER THAN YOU THINK certainly deserves it.Yes, the book's pulp origins are apparent. But modern readers should not let it distract them from this dynamic and highly original novel (which includes some great plot-twists that must have been very shocking in the 40's). My only complaint with this new edition is the cover, which is pretty darn ugly. However, the book does contain David G. Klein's black and white illustrations from the 1980's Bluejay edition, which is a nice bonus.

A Fly-Fisher's Guide to Saltwater Naturals and Their Imitation - book cover picture

George Roberts, known in the fly-fishing world by the affectionate name "F.F.", has composed a masterpiece of both biology and fly-fishing tactics. Incredibly detailed, a virtual master class on paper, this is well worth wading through incredible scientific detail embodied by the author. A worthwhile and enriching read for any one who is serious in their quest for fish. An excellent choice for the saltwater angler in your life. This is a book to be treasured and passed on from generation to generation. After finishing this fine work, you will be able to say "Just show me them fish". His video is also a must-have for the serious caster. If you only buy ONE fly fishing book this year, buy this one.
