after a lifetime of using his innate telepathy for nothing much, the protagonist’s ability begins to fade. nominated for the nebula, hugo and locust award back in 72, it’s a quick read with a unique take on an old idea.(view post)

you have to mourn. hard. even if only for a few hours one day. fill your head only with thoughts of your lost loved one. i prefer to spend moments like this alone, but surround yourself with like-feeling family members and friends if it helps you, and share with each other. focus on your grief and focus on all that his leaving will mean for you. focus on the tragedy first, then focus on all the fantastic memories and lessons he’s taught you. soon (or rather eventually) your feelings of anger and loss will begin to subside but all the love and warm memories will remain. it gets worse before it gets better; unfortunately, that cliche is very real.
i’m very sorry your friend died.(view post)
well, i finished the book i was reading. im ready to kick out the forumwarz book club jams! sooner the better.
any more ideas?(view post)
i’m in. i suggest that our first book be a work of fiction, preferably not too long. i’ve been in several failed book clubs and i find “dryness” and “length” beat out even “no time” as the number one reasons people sissy out. all fiction suggestions look good to me so far, especially everything is illuminated. if we select a Cormac McCarthy work though, i’d prefer reading The Road. most libraries will have it and i think its less than 300 pages if i remember correctly. i’ve been meaning to read it again to put it fresh my memory before i go watch Viggo Mortenson **** it up on the big screen this november. i’d read blood meridian too though.
second suggestion is I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. it’s fiction, short, and great. it makes me want to do surly things like drink whiskey, pine for a woman’s touch and slay the undead. we could even compare it to the movie(s) that were based on it for an extra bit of thoughtful discussion.
good idea Phin(view post)
