Daily Thoughts 02/05/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also finished reading Neal Asher Dark Intelligence.  The style is very interesting.  There are multiple viewpoint characters which range from human to alien.  There is a human who is slowly turning into an insectile war machine, a bioespionage specialist, a ruthless criminal, and a giant crablike alien who are at different points the main characters.  The central opponent is a rogue artificial intelligence that changes the main characters throughout the story with a mix of trickery and manipulation.  The story is very dark and brutal, but it draws you in with its darkness and its grotesque ideas.  It was a way to escape ordinary life for a while.

I placed Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman on hold.

I am looking at a review for The Untold History of Black Comic Books by Bill Foster and Craig Yoe.
