Honor Harrington: A Chick’s POV

A couple of months ago when I neared the bottom of my “must read” pile, Sean mentioned on the ‘cast that he really enjoyed the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. Since I’m not a “book bigot,” I decided to give the first, On Basilisk Station, a try.  After waiting seven to ten days for […]

Vampires: Beyond I Vant Tu Suck Your Blaud

I think Vampires and Vampire stories suffer from a bit of an image problem. Yeah I know, that sounds funny, but it’s true. I often hear people say Vampires are disgusting or that the stories are limited in their scope because all vamp tales are the same. In my most humble of opinions these are […]

The Honor Harrington Series

It takes me a while to plow through books. Mostly because I have roughly 12 active hobbies at any one time and have to steal time form the others to pursue one. Back in May I started reading the first book in a twelve novel series about a space fairing star captain named Honor Harrington […]

April GWC Book Of The Month: 2001 by Arthur C. Clarke

This month we took the suggestion of numerous GWCers and skipped the normal voting process, instead selecting 2001: A Space Odyssey as our monthly group read in honor of Arthur C. Clarke’s recent passing. The book and movie were written concurrently, and the story is largely based on various Clarke short stories. Wikipedia has a […]

March Book Of The Month: 1984

GWCers have spoken, and this month we’re all diving into some classic sci-fi: George Orwell’s 1984. Obviously the year in question has come and gone, and we’re not living in the world Orwell imagined. He certainly couldn’t have predicted Big Brother. But then again, his vision of things-to-come still seems relevant — and certainly lives […]
