Maurice Polydore Marie Bernard Maeterlinck (29, August 1862 – 6, May 1949) was a poet, writer and playwright from Belgium.
I really enjoyed four out of the five stories. One story was, for me, a little difficult to follow and somewhat convoluted, but overall it’s a very enjoyable book with great takes on time travel, as well as traveling between worlds.
The author has online instructions on how to setup a virtual machine using Linux to run many of the tools in your own environment without relying on external websites for your research. The book also talks about ethics, policy, documentation, and methodology – issues which might not be as impressive as catching or following bad actors, but are very important in courts and, of course, to management
Robert Stone (21 August, 1937 – 10 January, 2015) was an award winning American novelist known for his novel Dog Soldiers.
Overall I thought the book was a fun read, humorous and creative. I don’t know if I would have enjoyed it as much if I didn’t see the movies, and pop-culture cloud around them
It’s silly, insane, jumps around, and makes little sense especially if you read the first book. If you didn’t read Gideon the Ninth, I suggest you do, if you did – brush up on it before starting this one.

John Galsworthy (14 August, 1867 – 31 January, 1933) was an English novelist and playwright, as well as the 1932 Nobel Prize in Literature winner.
Most of these gems are well known, but I think the authors would have done well if they were more discreet, anyone can say a comeback, but there is an art in doing it like Churchill or Lincoln. Unfortunately many of today’s politicians that are quoted in this book are not anymore witty than the average middle school student, and some are less.
Hitler himself knew that many are out to kill him, he was obsessed with poising to the point where his food had to be specifically grown and was kept under constant watch by men he trusted from the moment it was picked (Hitler was a vegetarian), prepared, and plated. He even had food tasters, just in case.
