The Universe Is What We Make Of It: The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, Part 1

Following on from Sunday afternoon/evening’s successful first Twitter chat for the Sci-Fi Month readalong for this book, I decided to recap and expand on the excellent questions put forth by @joriestory, as well as revisiting the reasons why I love this book so much. There will be spoilers aplenty, though, so if you haven’t read this book, please be warned! This post will cover the beginning through to the end of “Port Coriol”. 

Top Ten Tuesday: One Day, All This Will Be Mine

It’s time for another List of Awesome Things, and today I’m taking a short rest away from all the Sci-Fi Month madness to share a few items from my wishlist. Today’s prompt is “bookish merch I’d like to own”, and for once I have actually been picky! (Translation: I didn’t make it to ten items! Let’s hear it for being particular, for once, heh!)

About Me

Dear Geek Place is my new home on the internet, though I've been around here before - I am the blogger formerly known as @EffingRainbow. Here, you can still find reviews of science fiction and fantasy books, but hopefully more besides, as I throw myself cheerfully out into the world and attempt to chronicle my experiences, one adventure at a time.
