Telling of Oxford's quirky, humorous past as well as the unique and interesting places to see in the city, Eccentric Oxford is unlike any travel guide you would have seen before and worthwhile picking up for some light reading even if you are not planning to visit the city of spires.

Review of a hardcore & insightful #NorseMythology non-fiction. Only 157 pages, but with as much heady impact as Thor's hammer.

Dumézil investigates the Gods of the Ancient Northmen.
Georges Dumézil's Gods of the Ancient Northmen surpasses the  academic into the realm of poetic & enlightening, like a good professor when he's got love behind his lecture. And of these eight chapters, some actually are taken from Dumézil's lectures. Publi...

A cute and short romance that you'll enjoy. I wished it was longer though. #bookreview   #youngadult   #contemporaryromance  
Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy silently crushing on best friend Cas and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent, and the obnoxiously superior ...

"...Among its strengths are an ultra-convincing depiction of the lives, especially the inner lives, of the Appalachian characters.  The grim details of their existence are delivered with such flat understatement that at times they almost become comic.  And just when you think enough is enough, this world is too plain ugly, Lacy Dawn’s father (who is being “fixed” with DotCom’s help) gets a job and Lacy Dawn, her mother and her dog take off for a trip to the mall “out of state” with Lacy Dawn’s android friend, now her “fiancé” (though as Lacy Dawn’s mother points out, he doesn’t have any private parts, not even “a bump.”)  In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy.  It’s quite a trip.

The blurb on the website says, in part:

Lacy Dawn is a true daughter of Appalachia, and then some. She lives in a hollow with her mom, her Vietnam Vet dad, and her mutt Brownie, a dog who’s very skilled at laying fiber-optic cable. Lacy Dawn’s android boyfriend, DotCom, has come to the hollow with a mission. His equipment includes infomercial videos of Earth’s earliest proto-humans from millennia ago. DotCom has been sent by the Manager of the Mall on planet Shptiludrp: he must recruit Lacy Dawn to save Earth, and they must get a boatload of shopping done at the mall along the way. Saving Earth is important, but shopping – well, priorities are priorities.

Yes, priorities are.  I should have had mine in order.  Robert Eggleton’s book deserves your attention.  Check it out."

Earlier this year I was contacted by first-time novelist Robert Eggleton, asking if I would review his forthcoming e-book. If people knew how many requests of this kind editors get, they would understand that out of self-preservation we sometimes… well, I ignored the request. Robert tried again.

Arguably one of the better books out on the subject right now (Linux forensics), this book covers it all. I think the book is worth it, ranging from ~$23-50, for over 600 pages of triage tips and tricks. I highly recommend this book to incident responders, reverse engineers, and Linux hackers everywhere, despite knowing some info in here, this text is so encompassing that I think everyone stands a chance to gain something from this guide. Overall I give it 9 out 10 stars, because it's an amazing, modern guide to incident response on a Linux platform.

Quick overview of "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" by T. Harv Eker.  Review discusses the two main topics the book covers and what you will get out of reading this book. If you like this review, please look out my upcoming version, which will go much more into detail about each section of the book.

When people make the comment “never judge a book by its cover” certain covers need to have an exception. Just have a look at the cover for BE FRANK WITH ME from Julia Claiborne Johnson​, it sums up the book to perfection; eccentric and fabulous all rolled into one. Kernel Deb reviews this fantastic read, out now from Allen & Unwin Books​.

My latest book review

The God's Eye View
By Barry Eisler

Politics is a passion of mine and I am familiar with many conspiracy theories; this fiction revolves around those possibilities, including those proven factual on U.S. government data harvesting; it concentrates on the inner structure of the NSA and a clandestine operation named, God's Eye. Reality is sometimes stranger than fiction.
