After just finishing reading Ender’s Game for the first time, I’m not enthralled with the novel. However, I’ve found that the science fiction genre has been a bit more challenging for me to read, as it doesn’t really hold my attention. With Ender’s Game, I think it’s possible that I may...

So there's this thing that many action videogames do these days..., I call it the "delay and bum-rush" technique. Basically the game finds a reason to keep you trapped in one place for x amount of time while you are assaulted with wave after wave of enemies. Maybe your "partner" will be busy hacking...

Elsiane is touring with Delerium at the moment. Caught their show a week ago, bought Elsiane's CD and have been hooked on it ever since.

So, just out of curiosity, how many of you ladies would be okay with dating a shorter man? Conversely, how many guys would date a taller lady?
I would *love* to date a taller woman. Unfortunately, with my height the chances of that are slim to none.

Finished The Caves of Steel. A little disappointed in the conclusion; it felt a little cheap compared to other Asimov books. But it was still a very fun read.

The minute you force someone to read/listen/experience any form of art, you've tainted it for that person, IMHO. One of the joys of art is the independent discovery and exploration of it.

I think a huge part of the problem is simply that some of you read EG back in the 70s or 80s and then read ES in the 90s (or whenever it was first published,) so it's almost like the Ender quartet and the Bean quartet are two completely different sagas that happen to involve the same characters.
