Book Recommendation: Fledgling by Octavia Butler

This is a Vampire Novel, so I almost did not read it. Vampires are not what I enjoy reading about; I cling more closely to suspense (human type) and science fiction, some historical novels. But, since one of my favorite authors, Octavia Butler, wrote it, I shuddered, cringed, gritted my teeth,... Sign in to see full entry.

It is Wrong to Question Motives . . . .

Or so I was told by one of my neighbors. Someone on our Civic League E-Mail List announced a Candlelight Vigil to honor the 2000 dead in Iraq. I asked a simple question: Is this vigil to honor the dead, to protest our presence in Iraq, or both? That seemed to offend a few poeple who said I should... Sign in to see full entry.

Thoughts are an extension of that experience, the randomness may well be in the mixing of that experience with earlier... Sign in to see full entry.

Charity is good, except . . .

When the funds come from public money. I am incensed that my President and my Congress have conspired to give taxpayer money to hurricane victims. Does that make me an ogre? I think not. Our Constitution is being ripped apart by Republican and Democrat alike. Charity is and should be an individual... Sign in to see full entry.

Based on a comment made by Xeno-x

I was reminded of an author I'd like to recommend to you all, Octavia Butler. She has writtn some fine science fiction, although it is science fiction that I think anyone, even non-SciFi readers would enjoy. One of my favorite books of hers is Kindred and the other is her "Parable" series. If any of... Sign in to see full entry.

Rampant Happiness!

Generally, I am a happy man. Today, however, I have been hit by a wave of happiness that I have not experienced in a long while. There is no reason for it that I can determine. It is a good day, as usual; I am just in a really, really happy mood, and wonder what good surprise the Universe has in... Sign in to see full entry.
