    Calahan's Crosstime Saloon is the place you find when you really need to.  
    Terry Pratchett's Discworld and Neal Gaiman's Sandman. There was also a series called "Swords and Sorceresses" which was the first venue for writer's with female heroines.  Fabulous stories, most still manage to be relevant.

    That's the beauty of libraries and books.  You drift until something catches your eye.  You find things. Lots of surprises.

      Is a real brain burner.  He creates entire Eco systems and brings us through them.  When we get to the end, then we realize where earth is going.

      for my bus home, I would hang out in the library a lot.  I started reading any interesting fiction book I saw, beginning with the "A's".  Found a lot of great stuff!
