Deadly Shores – Taylor Anderson

The long-planned raid on the heart of the Grik Empire has grown more ambitious – and dangerously ill-defined. Only Matthew Reddy, commander of the old destroyer USS Walker, seems focused on its original intent. Many Lemurians see an opportunity to reconquer their sacred homeland, which was stolen long ago, and have no intention of simply striking a blow and then pulling back. Others, Lemurian and human, have their own agendas – which may not be in the best interests of the Alliance. Complicating matters further is Reddy’s suspicion that his task force is being stalked by an unknown power bent on aiding the Grik for reasons of its own. As the raid begins and chaos reigns, Reddy has no choice but to go all in, risking everything in a desperate act that results in a sprawling, nightmarish battle on the beaches of “Grik City”, on the very decks of Walker, and in the labyrinthine passageways of the Celestial Palace itself. The final cost could be more than Matt Reddy – or the Alliance – can bear.

GoogleWhack! Adventure – Dave Gorman

Author: ,

image
At the age of 31 I decided it was time to be taken seriously. I decided I wanted to write a novel. I started by growing a beard. Somehow this helped to persuade a publisher to give me a deal for a novel. The idiots started by giving me a healthy sum of money. That was their first mistake. It was while I was trying to write my novel that I received an e-mail from a stranger telling me that I was a googlewhack. I didn’t know what a googlewhack was at the time. I do now. A googlewhack is what happens when two words are entered in to Google and it comes back with one and only one hit. (When the stranger told me I was a googlewhack, he didn’t mean that my name, Dave Gorman, was one… he meant that my website contained one. It was Francophile Namesakes but I wouldn’t bother googling it as it long ago stopped being a googlewhack.) Initially googlewhacking seemed to be a pleasant enough distraction. Just something to do while sitting at my computer thinking about how to start writing my novel. I had no idea it was about to take over my life. Explaining quite how it grew is more complicated than can be sensibly explained here. In short… what started as work-avoidance built up into something of a breakdown.
Abridged.

The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen-Scientist – Richard P. Feynman

Author: ,

The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen-Scientist

Many appreciate Richard P. Feynman’s contributions to twentieth-century physics, but few realize how engaged he was with the world around him—how deeply and thoughtfully he considered the religious, political, and social issues of his day. Now, a wonderful book—based on a previously unpublished, three-part public lecture he gave at the University of Washington in 1963—shows us this other side of Feynman, as he expounds on the inherent conflict between science and religion, people’s distrust of politicians, and our universal fascination with flying saucers, faith healing, and mental telepathy. Here we see Feynman in top form: nearly bursting into a Navajo war chant, then pressing for an overhaul of the English language (if you want to know why Johnny can’t read, just look at the spelling of “friend”); and, finally, ruminating on the death of his first wife from tuberculosis. This is quintessential Feynman—reflective, amusing, and ever enlightening.

Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say Fuck – Amy Alkon

Author: ,

Miss Manners with Fangs.” —LA Weekly We live in a world that’s very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but who also sometimes say “f*ck”) are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the increasing onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us out of the miasma of modern mannerlessness, science-based and bitingly funny syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon rips the doily off the manners genre and gives us a new set of rules for our twenty-first century lives.
With wit, style, and a dash of snark, Alkon explains that we now live in societies too big for our brains, lacking the constraints on bad behavior that we had in the small bands we evolved in. Alkon shows us how we can reimpose those constraints, how we can avoid being one of the rude, and how to stand up to those who are.
