Radiance

Radiance by Catherynne M. ValenteCatherynne M. Valente is well-known for her ambitious works of fantastical fiction and her latest novel Radiance may be her most ambitious yet. It is a hard book to review and even harder to describe, thanks to its multifaceted plot that keeps on turning in on itself in ever-intriguing twists and turns.

Here Be Dragons: Science, Technology and the Future of Humanity

Here Be Dragons: Science, Technology and the Future of HumanityThe title, "Here Be Dragons", refers to the uncharted territories of knowledge and technological abilities, where we might discover unknown threats. The mapmakers of old just hinted at possible dangers, but the message of this book is that we should do our best to prepare for situations where we might hold tools or knowledge that could destroy us.

We've got books for lovers, for all you lovers of books

Nothing quite says I LOVE YOU like a really good book.

On Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year.
