1. Grab a copy of "How Things Work". was even used in an early post apocalyptic Sci Fi book... Guy used it to restart civilization. Damned if I can't remember the book? Maybe The Postman, by David Brin. Maybe The Mote in God's Eye, or Ringworld... by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. or possibly???

  2. Hi. You just mentioned Ringworld by Larry Niven.

  3. To clarify, the original 4 issue series was written by Neil Gaiman (and they did a recent series in the Sandman Universe), but Books of Magic isn’t a spinoff.

  4. Hi. You just mentioned The Sandman by Neil Gaiman.

  5. The start of Time Enough for Love by Robert Heinlein starts like this. People can live for millenia, providing they take treatments like blood replacement etc (not vampires!) The man decides he's lived long enough, and holes up in a flop-house to die; but is found by one of his descendants, who wants his help.

  6. Hi. You just mentioned Time Enough For Love by Robert Heinlein.

  7. I love this painting! Is by Dragan Bibin, in case you don't know, and he has a lot of mysterious and frightening paintings.

  8. Hi. You just mentioned The Haunting Of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

  9. Another great book by Orwell is Animal Farm. It is similar to 1984 in its messaging, but is much shorter and easier to read. It also opts for the allegory of the animal farm over the stark, languid realism that makes up 1984.

  10. Hi. You just mentioned Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

  11. Hi. You just mentioned Protector by Larry Niven.

  12. Since other have presented their ideas, and I have critiqued those ideas, I should submit my own.

  13. Hi. You just mentioned Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

  14. Hi. You just mentioned American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

  15. Check out High-Rise, by J.G. Ballard (author of Empire of the Sun which is a MUST READ, and good movie).

  16. Hi. You just mentioned High-Rise by Jg Ballard.

  17. I love Mort. He reminds me so much of my dad, and I can relate so hard to Chilli telling him to rest. Plus his playing with the kids in Phones is exactly what my dad would do if my kids tried to introduce modern technology to him.

  18. Hi. You just mentioned Mort by Terry Pratchett.

  19. Terry pratchett wrote several books with death as a main character and they explore mortality and are hilarious .the first two are mort and reaper man he also wrote No one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away, until the clock wound up winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone’s life is only the core of their actual existence.

  20. Hi. You just mentioned Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett.

  21. I notice you’re reading a lot of literary fiction, which is never a bad thing. I might suggest branching out a little. Think Neil Gaiman’s American Gods or Susanna Clarke’s Piranesi. If you don’t like Sci Fi or Fantasy I’d recommend Madeline Miller’s Song of Achilles or Circe.

  22. Hi. You just mentioned American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

  23. tiré du film Coraline, c'est plus ou moins pour les enfants (pas trop jeunes ni trop impressionnables car c'est tiré d'un roman de Neil Gaiman donc un peu dérangeant).

  24. Hi. You just mentioned Coraline by Neil Gaiman.

  25. People are really retconning a lot of "but they're bad!!!!" to mentally make it easier to drop the books, imo, and to judge anyone reading them / saying they're objectively good books as therefore a bad and evil person.

  26. Hi. You just mentioned Charlie And The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

  27. Hi. You just mentioned The Life And Adventures Of Santa Claus by L Frank Baum.

  28. "Ishmael is a 1992 philosophical novel by Daniel Quinn. The novel examines the hidden cultural biases driving modern civilization and explores themes of ethics, sustainability, and global catastrophe. Largely framed as a Socratic conversation between two characters,[1] Ishmael aims to expose that several widely accepted assumptions of modern society, such as human supremacy, are actually cultural myths that produce catastrophic consequences for humankind and the environment. The novel was awarded the $500,000 Turner Tomorrow Fellowship Award in 1991, a year before its formal publication.[2]"

  29. Hi. You just mentioned Ishmael by Daniel Quinn.

  30. My week was CHILLED. On holiday at home and the weather has been typical British spring rain and high winds so have been pottering about the house and catching up on reading. Currently into American Gods by Neil Gaiman and Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski. Both great.

  31. Hi. You just mentioned American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

  32. In Stephen King's Carrie, when Carrie got dissed like that, she telepathically locked all the gym doors and began decimating the guests one by one. I thought you were gonna have Lucy exact revenge on Martin for taking her for a fool. She should have.

  33. Hi. You just mentioned Carrie by Stephen King.

  34. Hi. You just mentioned Carrie by Stephen King.

  35. Maybe straw man is the wrong phrase, and I don’t think he is wrong necessarily about casual fans or the sports chatter class of the media not mentioning guys like T-Mac often enough relative to his skills, just because he didn’t get a ring and enter the GOAT Pantheon.

  36. Hi. You just mentioned American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

  37. Douglas Adams so wanted the Hitchhikers Guide to be real he tried to start it on a BBC website. He died before Wikipedia became popular, but after it was created. He had no idea the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy already existed. It's sad. 😭

  38. Hi. You just mentioned Hitchhiker'S Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

  39. You need to read all of his books and The Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan to fully understand Holly

  40. Hi. You just mentioned The Wheel Of Time by Robert Jordan.

  41. Action/Adventure: Any Michael J Sullivan works are highly recommended with a great narrator. I started with the Riyria series, but legends of the first empire is probably my favorite.

  42. Hi. You just mentioned Mort by Terry Pratchett.

  43. Unfortunately the movie is dreadful if you've read the books first.

  44. Hi. You just mentioned Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice.

  45. No, but you see, Carrie was written by a man, so it obviously can't depict any authentic experiences of a girl getting bullied, Stephen King just thought up wild fantasies of girl-on-girl abuse with his penis! /s

  46. Hi. You just mentioned Carrie by Stephen King.
