Peter Grant’s new book Take the Star Road is now available at Amazon. I read it when it was being edited and re-read it again when making the cover design. I recommend it, especially if you like the style of … Continue reading
I recently mentioned Marko’s new book as the best military science fiction I’ve read in quite some time. Good to see it gain the deserved popularity. At three bucks, it’s the best entertainment you can get for a day or … Continue reading
I watched the movie last year. Over the last week, I read the first five books. Between the quality writing and the apparently well done translations, I really enjoyed them. The plot-wrangling takes a second place to the texture and … Continue reading
Little Badger in the hands of self-defense trainer Kathy Jackson. Little Badger looks like an illicit love child between an AR15 and a Mk3 Sten. It’s all black metal and Picatinny rails, with a ladder sight of M2 carbine and … Continue reading
Summary: don’t waste your time or your patience. Casting: very poor. Certain characters, such as Thorin, were mis-cast. Screenplay: terrible. Even having read the book, I found the plot disjointed and nonsensical. Logical connections between events were lost. The spirit … Continue reading
One of my favorite fairy tales is finally available on-line.
Подскажите, где найти полную книгу в электронном формате. Я непротив купить, но заказывать на бумаге неудобно из-за особеностей доставки через океан.
Sprague DeCamp’s Lest Darkness Fall was first published in 1939. It was one of the first coherent time travel stories and quite well written. The author created a humorous,and informative tale of a history professor who ends up in 6th … Continue reading
One of my favorite stories by Phillip K. Dick is now in the public domain: “Beyond Lies the Wub”.
The main character from Monster Hunter International. Met him yesterday.
Ever wondered who has hands big enough to shoot Desert Eagles comfortably? I bet he carries enough of them to do New York reloads…or at least his book characters could.
My friend Marisa has been carrying for less than a year. She found the book helpful. I’ve been carrying for about fifteen years and I found the book very informative as well. Give it a try, you just might enjoy … Continue reading
And speaking of A.A.Milne — does anyone know why all the texts of “Winnie the Pooh” are gone from the Internet all of a sudden?
The author of On a Wing and a Whim blog. This photo shows one advantage of video viewfinders — to focus with wide open aperture, I was able to zoom in one her eye and select which eyelash would be … Continue reading
When John Ross wrote his seminal Unintended Consequences, people accused him of being overly dramatic. After all, ATF agents wouldn’t frame people or commit murder, right? When Matt Bracken wrote Enemies Foreign and Domestic series, most readers thought the idea … Continue reading
Balzac’s short stories and novels on-line. I was curious about an illustration for L’amie du Roi and decided to look up the story itself.
Last week, I met John Lott for the first time in twelve years. I last saw him in Minnesota back in 1999. His research and articulate writing have done much for the civil rights in the US.
The Grave of the Hundred Head by Kipling was recently referenced in a post about possible forceful responses to government abuses. However, we may want to keep in mind that Kipling wrote about revenge exacted against a local population by … Continue reading
