Book Review: Time Loopers: by David Hambling, Byron Craft, Matt Davenport, and John Delaughter

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.

Book Review: Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

It’s silly, insane, jumps around, and makes little sense especially if you read the first book.

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.
