Now is your chance to help decide which two titles will be picked as The Gilded Pen Book Club's reads for July and win a copy of either DUCHESS BY NIGHT by Eloisa James or AFTER THE KISS by Suzanne Enoch!
Just check out the post on our club page to enter!
Happy New Year to you, too, and thank you for the note. You ask about Laurel Bradley's A Wish In Time. I liked Laurel's sympathetic treatment of infertility, and also the fact (which is quite beside the point as far as a recommendation is concerned) that she was donating all her November royalties to an infertility related charity.
Your very kind message made my day! Thank you so very much.
So much to answer. Please forgive me, I'm too much of a dinosaur to have two windows open at once.
Let's see. I have to confess, I have *not* quite finished with Rhett's story. It turns out, it might be the heroine's story, and she has a lot to say, especially about retractable male genitalia ... and it is not all good. Also, she has decided to be very awkward about revealing a secret that would instantly win her the hero's reluctant sympathy.
It's not a TSTL situation, though.
My publisher is all set for a September release. They asked me for cover info just today.
You could attribute Djetth's innate decency to the fact that he was educated on Earth!
The psychic grannies really set the cat among the pigeons where Rhett is concerned.
Gotta go write a fight!
Hi Rowena. I just finished reading INSUFFICIENT MATING MATERIAL. What fun to see Djeth and Marsh warily dance around one another on that island. (How in heck did Djeth turn out to be such a decent guy in that fantastically sexist culture? Amazing.) The resulting genealogy made my head hurt. If only those Djinn guys could keep it in their pants, things would be simpler. But then I guess the psychic grannies wouldn't have had such strong motivation for their dangerous cat-and-mousing, huh. So you're done with 'Rhett's story? When's it due out?
Hi, sallysaurus. Coming of Age in the Milky Way was pretty good. It's basically a walk through the history of astronomy. I would say that, behind Carl Sagan, Timothy Ferris is perhaps the best at conveying the ineffable wonder of looking up at the sky on a clear night. This is one of his better books. This Is Your Brain on Music, on the other hand, was a bit of a disappointment. The radio interview with the author managed to convey most of the interesting subject matter of the book. You can listen to the segment here: http://www.kpbs.org/radio/these_days;id=7355
I hope we are evolving past the current limits; but that isn't to say that by going past the old limits, there aren't now NEW limits.
History teaches us that, yes, there are always limits, but where history repeats is when people don't pay attention to the limits that we know to be there...or maybe they pretend that there aren't any limits at all.
You can go on & on, that's really all right by me. What you speak of is basic democracy, so what I wonder is what are the limits to the technological revolution (all systems and revolutions have their limits. Yes?) Limits leave a segment of any population ambivalent, and the results are always ambivalent. Tag, your it.
