Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow. It's wicked rad so far, I dig it.
Like the listening to thread... what book are you reading right now?
I'm currently reading 2 books The third world war 1985 and the biography of Arthur c Clarke
The phrase "Weird, post-apocalyptic" is one way of getting my attention! The Kindle version is not much cheaper than the paperback so for this one I'll use the 'free sample' option first to check it out.I'm reading Samuel R. Delany's Dahlgren. Weird, post-apocalyptic, but goes with the strange times we're living through
I haven't read any fantasy lately so this trilogy may be in order.Finally got back to my reading this week. Last night I finished “White Jenna” by Jane Yolen, the second Great Alta book. I quite liked it, as it was a good conclusion to the story set up in the first book, “Sister Light, Sister Dark.” I enjoyed the contrast between the actual story the historical/mythic asides. The plot really raced along.
I'm not familiar with the title you're looking for but this part about the foil is the classic description of the Roswell debris. Any connection?Most important in the book that was the farmer gave this American reporter a piece of metal like tin foil, that when you screwed it up into a ball in your hand it actually opened up flat, on its own and produced a seamless piece of thin metal as though it had never been screwed up.
Is the series oriented more towards the sci-fi side or 'romance novel' side?Last night I finished book 4 of Gail Carriger’s Custard Protocol series, Reticence. Quite witty and great fun! There was world-building right up to the end. It featured a rather awkward romance between Victorian geeks. Also got into the head of one of the Custard’s crew. Also action and a wedding full of cameos to start the book.
