After On by Rob Reid
"I'm not opposed to reading books about Silicon Valley after I've left, and the characters and plots are relatively realistic, but their pseudo-technology is driving me nuts. The reality behind tech right now is that no one has life-changing techno..." Read more of this review »
Steven Universe by Jeremy Sorese
"Really fun to have a long-form story for Steven Universe in comic form. The writing is done in the proper style, and the characters voices match well". It's a pretty decent plotline. The one disappointing thing was the artist switched to someone e..." Read more of this review »

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

William Shakespeare
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
