4.0 out of 5 stars My second Kindle, 28 Nov 2010
My first one was stolen and my memory is not working well so I may have the facts wrong. IIRC the first one was white and I preferred it to the new model because it had bigger page turning buttons and was more ergonomic to use. I see the new model has better contrast but that is not important for me.
I love my Kindle and couldn't do without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Iggy song, 27 April 2010
This review is from: Dum Dum Boys (MP3 Download)
Well things are getting hard without the Dum Dum boys.
I can't seem to speak the language.

This is from his time in Berlin with Bowie. David wanted to be Iggy but could only be Ziggy. See The Velvet Goldmine.

The proto punk Iggy Pop must have been fantastic live but this is the song I listen to at home.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is good but not his best, 26 April 2010
This review is from: Saturn's Children (Paperback)
Charles Stross is a great hard SF writer obsessed with the coming singularity [ Vernor Vinge ]
This book is set in a future where there are no humans just robots. The heroine is a female sex robot with no men to serve.
I find it hard to care about an adventure where all the humans are extinct.
I recommend his short story collection Toast and have bought Singularity Sky.
I read The Atrocity Archives but I should have been warned by the title: its very nasty horror. I was hoping for something like J G Ballard's Atrocity Exhibition but I got a nastier treatment of Lovecraftian Nazi torture and Cthulu Mythos. Let Yog Sothos lie.
Let the dyeing die - Let the lying lie as Captain Beefheart sang.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent advanced text on practical quantum chaos magick., 3 Jan 2010
This review is from: Liber Kaos (Paperback)
Includes a quantum cosmology with no Big Bang or Heat
Death of the Universe. At last I have found a resolution to the
paradox of free will versus determinism.

We have to believe in our own free will.

We have no choice in the matter.


Agent to the Stars
Agent to the Stars

Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.72

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as The Android's Dream., 3 Jan 2010
This review is from: Agent to the Stars (Paperback)
This book is OK but not bursting with brilliant ideas like The Android's Dream.
As Homer would say,"The Church of the Evolved Lamb is funny because it's true!"

3.0 out of 5 stars New slippers just like the Old Ones, 8 April 2009
My old slippers were a gift and very soon became sweaty and worn out on the inside. I was hoping these would be better but despite being a different make they are no different. Cheap slippers are all as bad apparently. If you want quality you will have to pay more.
