Back Online, BTT
Thurs 4 Dec 2008

After five days of feeling vaguely blah, I finally decided to actually get sick. I've been offline for a few, but now I'm back.

PPS is awesome! A most exciting thing happened while I wasn't around! The back-story: Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary is my most favorite animal sanctuary in the world! Some neighboring land, with a house, had come up for sale and Peaceful Prairie was trying to buy it. Yes, I jumped and sent them more money than I could afford! ;) But then, evil people swooped down with a better offer and it was accepted. *cries!*

But then! The evil people's offer fell through! And Peaceful Prairie was able to swoop!! And Peaceful Prairie wins! Yay!! 35 more acres for the animals to live on, and a house which will be converted into a guest house and education center!

Awesome, I am just thrilled to bits!

  • 1. Do you have a favorite author?

I always answer this question with David Brin, because I love the Uplift Series. But, honestly, the story is not complete... and the last book was out in 1998, and I don't think he's working on a next set of Uplifts. So that annoys me.

But I don't know who else to name as my favorite author, so I guess I'll have to stick with Brin.

  • 2. Have you read everything he or she has written?

Dolphins! I've read everything Uplift. The six books in the series: Sundiver, Startide Rising, The Uplift War, Brightness Reef, Infinity's Shore, Heaven's Reach. The two short stories, "Afictionado" and "Temptation". And Contacting Aliens: An Illustrated Guide To David Brin's Uplift Universe.

But David Brin has a decent collection of other books that I pretty much ignore. I've not read them, and I don't have plans to read them. I don't know why!

  • 3. Did you LIKE everything?

oh, Yes. In fact, just thinking about these books makes me want to re-read them!

  • 4. How about a least favorite author?

heh. A toss up between Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Mostly just because they are so popular, and when people find out I'm a reader, they ask if I've read whatever by King or Koontz. I don't read horror any more because it's lame!

  • 5. An author you wanted to like, but didn't?

I'm not sure this has ever happened to me!
