I Recently Finished Reading: The Stars My Destination

I probably started this book four or five times before I actually got past the first chapter or two. The book starts with a lengthy exposition on "jaunting," which is basically personal teleportation without any technological aid.

Galactic Pot Healer probably falls into the weird category. The premise of the book is that an extraordinarily powerful alien is attempting to raise a … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Galactic Pot Healer
