Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Vote in Poll to recieve free copy of American Gods: My favorite book from the 00's so far
Vote here in a poll to help Neil Gaiman decide which book to release for free.

If you haven't read American Gods, nows your chance to read it for fre. As the title suggestions, it's a brilliant concieved, thrilling look in the the heard of the gods (past present and future) of the good ole US of A. The basic premis is the same as Small Gods, my favorite book of the 90's: god's survive based on how many people believe in them. Sounds heretical? Deliciously, insightfuly so.

It also makes the midwest seem exciting. A good quote from a review of American Gods:

One of the things Gaiman does in American Gods -- and it is a book which does many things and does them well -- is fantasticate the Midwest. Gaiman is an English expatriate, now living in Minnesota. He is able to depict the American heartland with the knowledge of a resident and the perspective of an outsider. He takes places like Lookout Mountain, the House on the Rock, the Center of America and Cairo in Little Egypt and makes them part of the book's mythology. It is, to my knowledge, the first major work of fantasy to do this. In Gaiman's hands, the Midwest becomes a wellspring of stories, like John Crowley's Edgewood, Charles de Lint's Newford, Stephen King's Castle Rock and other key venues in the alternate North America invented by fantasy writers.
