  2. You lot are forever recommending titles to read and then I'm forgetting about them, and then I have to go trawling through the WAYRN thread in search of the good stuff. Inevitably I forget and miss that good stuff. I thought that it might be useful to have a single thread where we can recommend titles or series, but not just a list thread. What I'd like is a recommendation from everyone (just one for now) - and if you want to write a little spiel why, that's fine, if you don't, that's also fine - and I will collate them into a list in the first post. However, I'd then like to get you to
  3. The story around this YA book might be more interesting than the book itself! This caught my eye a few days ago. http://nerdist.com/first-look-at-lani-sarems-handbook-for-mortals-cover-exclusive/ And the cover! It's quite striking. In fact I was sure I'd seen it previously. Sort of. Others picked up on it too. Oh dear. As for the other drama? http://www.cracked.com/article_25050_what-stupid-thing-trending-now-8272017.html Oh. No.
  4. I noticed on Rudy Rucker's blog the other day that he's released three of his nonfiction texts as free online editions: Infinity and the Mind The Lifebox, the Seashell, and the Soul The Fourth Dimension The Fourth Dimension is particular is an amazing read that has blown my tiny mind on many occasions. It builds on the analogy of Edwin Abbott's Victorian 2D masterpiece Flatland to explore the concepts and practicalities of higher dimensions, both in mathematics and the real world. There are exercises, puzzles and illustrations alongside Rucker's grade-A gonzo
  5. Recently purchased the Superman Earth One series of graphic novels on the back of having enjoyed Batman v Superman somehow. I blasted through them rather quickly and really enjoyed them, although they are not perfect. Looking for other graphic novels more geared towards adults (ala watchmen) on the subject. Any recommendations?
  6. It's an interesting question and there's no one simple answer. Author Hugh Howey puts forward his ideas. They're pretty good too. http://www.hughhowey.com/dont-anyone-put-me-in-charge/ Some publishers are coping better than others but so far there's no real evidence of any coherent strategy from any of them. I as a customer personally have a number of issues. 1. I'd like all the books I want to buy available as ebooks (Assuming that's a suitable format. I realise it isn't for certain types of book. I'm mainly talking about fiction here). 2. Rightly or wrongly there's an expectation that ebook
  7. There doesn't appear to be one thread devoted to people helping each other out with book recommendations. Please delete this and point me in the right direction if there already is one though. So, I guess you tell people what you like and the rllmuk community barrages you with books similar to those you've enjoyed and that you might well take pleasure from reading. I'll start. I've been reading lots of Richard Yates lately. I thoroughly enjoy his brand of misery and dissatisfaction with life, cutting through all the tiresome bourgeois aspirations and reminding us of the quiet sadness in everyt
