Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

What books are you reading?

Shellhead wrote: Snow Crash was fun. The Diamond Age was good, but felt like it could have easily been written by William Gibson or Bruce Sterling. Cryptonomicon was work to get through, and I don't remember most of it. I struggled to get into Quicksilver and finally gave up on it and on Stephenson. He has his style and he has his fanbase, but I don't have time for his sloppy ramblings anymore.


I'm re-reading a bunch of stuff now. My daughter is taking a Sci-fi lit English class at Umaine. We are going thru the the reading list together, having a mini book club once a week over Facetime. Started with Frankenstein, I had never read it- holy moly is it slooooow. It was a slog for me to get to the end. Next up was Asimov, mostly hitting the highlights of the Robotics Laws stories, I think his writing holds up. Then was PK Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. I love PK Dick, I went thru a phase a few years ago where I read just about everything he put out. We are now onto Gibson's Neuromancer. I hadn't read it since high school. I remember liking it a bunch 35 years ago. Now I don't know. I feel this retro future/ nostalgia thing when reading it now, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I did then. My daughter's take is interesting, especially with Gibson, she didn't live thru the 80's so she doesn't it thru that lens. We'll get the 2nd half of the semester's reading list this coming week. More to come.

Most of the way through Say Nothing about the Troubles. It's great.
