"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Busted Again

— by Wombat-socho Readers of Instapundit and Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter Nation blog (which should be most of you, I would think) are already aware of Nick Cole’s very public calling out of Harper Collins for attempting to kill his latest book, CTRL-ALT-Revolt!, and terminating his contract for the unforgivable sin of Wrongthink. If not, […]

The Colonel Walter E. Kurtz Memorial Book Post

— by Wombat-socho It is impossible to describe what is necessary, to those who do not know what horror means. You must make a friend of horror. Short book post this week since I didn’t actually get to do much reading; for some weird reason, two of the three books I read this week had […]

A Hideously Overdue Collection Of Book Reviews

— compiled by Wombat-socho I had originally intended to do these right after Christmas, since I’d been sent a few books to review and picked up some as well, but I came down with a bad case of what fellow conservative geek blogger Moe Lane refers to as “Fallout Flu”, which lasted well into the […]

Off To The Side

— by Wombat-socho For someone who’s allegedly been spending a lot of his time studying up on stuff for the upcoming tax season, I sure have been doing a lot of non-tax reading…probably because after watching a couple hours of training videos, my brain turns to mud.

The Thanksgiving Book Post

— by Wombat-socho What with all the pre-season tax training, an excursion to Portland, and what have you, it’s been way too long since my last book post, so let’s do this thing. First on the docket is Jean Larteguy’s The Centurions, the famous novel that bridges the First Indochina War and the Algerian War. […]

The Man In The High Castle

— by Wombat-socho Apologies for the lack of book posts, but last week was pretty much eaten by work leading up to the October 15 extension deadline, medical appointments, and other craziness. This week I want to talk a little bit about The Man In The High Castle, originally a book by Philip K. Dick, […]

That Crazy Buck Rogers Stuff

— by Wombat-socho So, a couple of weeks ago in the comments Goodstuff brought up the topic of Buck Rogers, and I was going to write about that last week in the book post, but I Forgot. Going to remedy that failure right here and now. The original Buck Rogers tale, Armageddon 2419 A.D. is […]
