Book catch-up #3 The Unparalleled Borges

I read Labyrinths, a collection of short stories by Jorge Luis Borges, and I can't overestimate how amazing these stories were. I could probably write a post about every story, but I'll stick to a few standouts. The Library of Babel: A library that contains not only every book ever written, but every possible arrangement …

Habits sure are easy to break. I have been writing a lot of short stories lately, and trying to edit my novel, and doing a lot of stuff for Lucent Dreaming. Let's see, what's been going on... I've written 22 stories this year so far, though some of them are very very short, and some …

The Looking Glass War, by John le Carre

The Looking Glass War , the second le Carre novel I've read, was much different from ¬†The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. It was about a completely other department, in fact, called 'the department.' The department doesn't usually send spies out into action, but they think, hey, why shouldn't we do that too? …
