Password Incorrect

by Nick Name

I mostly agree with the review Billy.
I thought that the combination of
absurdism and the Polish to English
translation just didn't work. Perhaps
this collection is better in the original
language, but it just doesn't quite
work as it is in this translation.

At least the book is free. I'd feel
bad if I'd paid the buck or two that
online retailers are charging for it.

A Voyage to Arcturus

by David Lindsay

Pseudo-religious claptrap.

This really isn't a novel, and certainly not science fiction. It is a bunch of parables, and parables that really make no sense. The book is mostly without any purpose. The only thing that kept me reading it was that I could not believe how bad it was, nor could I believe that anyone could recommend it or refer to it as a page-turner.
