Book Review: Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

As a lifelong science fiction fan and author, I’m embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to start reading the works of award-winning science fiction author Octavia E. Butler. No one really recommended her to me until a few years ago, and it took a while for me to take the recommendation to heart and track down a copy of one of her books.

I’m glad that I did.

Don’t Vote For Evil

Cthulhu for President by xalres.

Earlier this year, I said that I would only write one post about the 2016 U.S. election cycle. Ultimately, I decided to split my commentary into two posts. The first post, which I invite you to read too, is called Don’t Just Vote. The second post, which you’re reading now, is called Don’t Vote For Evil.

Book Review: Six Degrees by Mark Lynas

Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet by Mark Lynas is one of the most important books I’ve ever read. It was published in 2008, so some of the science it discusses is becoming slightly outdated. Even so, it’s still the most comprehensive and compelling overview of global warming (both the science and its human consequences) that I’ve read to date.
