Hunted, compelling dark fantasy

In my search for new authors I came across this gem from S.W. Vaughn. The story revolves around Grace Carrington, the runaway daughter of a rich socialite. She funds her fugitive lifestyle from casino winnings gained with the help of her new found psychic powers, but these same powers make her a target. What she doesn’t know is that she is a nehpilim – half angel, half human – and the angels are actively exterminating nephilim.

Quick book recommendation sites

What to read next?Keeping your reading list fresh and interesting can be quite a challenge. Most authors don’t produce books as fast as we can read them and this can leave you at a loose end. Fortunately, finding interesting books to keep you entertained while waiting for the next exciting instalment from your favourite authors does not have to be difficult. Apart from the the great book catalogue sites like LibraryThing and GoodReads there are a few quick recommendation sites for those (like me) that are in a rush to find the next exciting thing.

Random Pretties

I love it when designers and artists take a humdrum item from everyday life and transform it. They force one to look at the world with new eyes and appreciate the beauty that we often miss. Take the humble potato for instance. They take up space in your kitchen as shapeless beige lumps which are more appreciated for their taste than their looks. Mind you, potatoes are pretty darn tasty when given the right treatment. But I’ve never considered them to be very visually appealing. Until now. Take a look at the photos below – potatoes are magical! I’m sure that you’ll agree that the artist has found something in the humble potato that we have all been missing.

Weekly free eBook!

John Scalzi - Agent to the StarsAs an avid reader without access to a good library, I’m constantly looking for ways to feed my habit without breaking the piggy bank. This has become much easier now that books are available in electronic format. There are actually quite a few sites that host only FREE ebooks. No strings attached. How awesome is that?

Often a lot of the work is in the public domain because it’s just so old, but if you’re a fan of the classics, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Fortunately there are a few sites, like ManyBooks,  that also have some very interesting contemporary offerings. One of these (and the review for today) is John Scalzi’s Agent to the Stars.

The death of IE6

It’s official. Internet Explorer 6, more affectionately known as IE6 to most of us, has passed away after 8 years on the Intrawebs scene. You may now take a moment of silence to quietly whoop so as not to disturb the rest of the occupants of your cubicle farm.

Even though most companies, including Google, is ceasing support, some people still have this beauty installed on their computers. The mind boggles. If you are guilty of this, please remedy the situation by getting yourself a new browser. There are many options available such as Firefox and Google Chrome.

To commemorate the event, a design company in Denver hosted the funeral last night. All friends and loved ones were invited and those unable to attend were requested to send flowers. Unfortunately I missed the happy event, but you can still go take a sneaky peeky at the official page and comments. It’s good for a giggle.
