Yes, I know, we all shudder when we hear that and think back to certain novels we may have loved in our teens, but we look back on them now and cringe. * cough Shadowrun, Nigel Findley cough* But hey, we loved them at the time and they served a purpose.

You know how frequently when you pick up a fiction book, especially genre, especially the hot new genre, and you start reading, you find yourself thinking, “Hell, who do I have to blow to get a book contract?” You will think nothing of the sort about Gail Carriger’s Soulless.

I don’t know if all geeks are packrats like this, but an awful lot… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #105 – Man, I have a lot of stuff.
