Pen and Plot

I thought I'd share another old army

Obligatory "Holy crap it's cold" post. -9F, feels like -30F (-23C and -34C). A good day to stay inside drinking hot chocolate and reading a or playing board games.

For my friends in the area, stay warm and be safe. (actually, that applies to anyone, not just my friends in the area)

Has anyone else experienced this crackdown on reviews from unverified Amazon purchases

If so, it represents a major dent for indie and debut authors who raise our profile by asking for reviews. Reviews should be independent, honest and always unpaid.

Iconographie des champignons de Paulet, recueil de 217 planches dessines d'aprs nature by Lveill, Joseph Henri, 1796-1870 Paulet, Jean-Jacques, 1740-1826

The Weaver and the Witch Queen, by Genevieve Gornichec, is a fantastic enemies-to-lovers story set in the Viking Age, with prominent and well-written transgender representation.

I via Spectered Isle by KJ Charles ( 1/Green Men). This M/M is based in an alternate England, with a secret magick reality & a wicked Shadow Ministry. A little hard for me to understand early in but I eventually caught on. Think this might have been better for me in print.

Why does anyone walk out of Eden To see what lies beyond. He paused. And no matter how disappointed they are, they never return.

Riverside

"Be what you think,"
said the wise man
as he slammed down another drink
on the riverside.
"Fake it until you make it
live under a lie
if you must
until the very day you die."

My eyes stare out onto the waters,
calmly flowing from right to left
as the man yeehaws and barfs out a lecture,
ignorant of the life of which I was bereft.

"But I think of so many things,"
I finally reply after a length
of time,
seemingly empty yet full of hidden depths
like the river when at high tide.
"I can't stay still.
I always shift
from Equinox high
to wanting to die
eventually,
and along the way
I pray
to Lethe to keep at bay
the burden of thoughts about the past,
to Hydra to re-grant me some semblance
of a birthright that will last,
to Velouria to unshackle me
from this human form too tame.
Who could quantify a river
Who dare give it a permanent name"

I stand up. The sun
is low in the sky.
My shadow stretches across the grass,
imposing and tall.

"I think of so many things,
and yet nothing at all."

I think I might have found a new obsession. Just finished making this book nook with my wife. They look so cool!

The only good thing that I accomplished during this week in the hospital bed, besides getting better, is finishing this masterpiece. Highly recommended if music of J Dilla means anything to you.

PORTRAIT OF THE SCIENTIST AS A YOUNG WOMAN
Lindy Elkins-Tanton

Intense story of climbing the ego-driven tiers of science, exposing its patterns of abuse. Tales of Siberian field work and making NASA proposals. Often stymied by misogyny at home and abroad, nevertheless pushing for reform. Facing resistance both from tight-knot leadership and a younger generation less patient with her slow approach. Ultimately optimistic when her egalitarian Psyche team is accepted by NASA.

4: MERCURY by Amy Jo Burns--A moving character-driven story set in the 1990s about a family living in a small town in western Pennsylvania. 4 stars

New sapphic book review: Not Like Before by Lily Seabrooke & Jacqueline Ramsden

Vicente pasa la frontera francesa para sumarse a los exiliados de la guerra. Desde el campo de refugiados nos narra sus vivencias y su historia.

Emotiva, intensa y tierna. A mi siempre e gusto que mis abuelos me contaran sus vivencias de la guerra y la postguerra, por eso creo que me ha llegado ms esta historia. Un bonito homenaje a una persona y a toda una generacin que vivi, sangr, muri y sufri aquel periodo. Gracias.

Uh oh. 15 (30) min later, I've read the new list, delved into the reviews of each book and am now thoroughly excited about the ones I've added to my list. Better get started :-)

Timothy Knab's "Dialogue of Earth and Sky" on beliefs of San Martn Zinacapan has completely upended everything I thought I knew about and

I didnt have a good understanding of the dream and souls, but this blew me away.

I'm reading Ecotopia (Ernest Callenbach, 1975) and will try to give my opinions and takeaways as they form. Ecotopia is a cult classic and one of the defining books of the solarpunk genre. If anyone needs help getting it, message me and I'll help. I'm thinking about commenting on 10-15% of the book at a time.
