has anyone read this? it's been awhile since i've bought a
book, so was thinking of picking it up this week. i more or
less know the story, i'll have to see if i like the writing
style.

i've been thinking of getting into warhammer fiction too
lately.

i wish i could buy things like mein kampf & the communist
manifesto without getting put on a list. even that last
sentence has attracted enough artificial intelligence to put
me on one.

we need physical copies because all books will be burned one
day and digital tablets we gaslight us. we will question the
information and the very words themselves will transform &
rearrange themselves to adapt to the narrative before we can
even read it. the next several pages will always be changing
before you even get to them. it's much like how in 1984 it's
said that history is always rewritten, but this time it will
be done preemptively in real-time.

and read a few lines, seemed cool, always meant to get back
to it

I read it, i liked the concepts more than the book itself,
however I read it when I was in a bad frame of mind so It
probably needs a
re-appraisal

I read the difference engine by Gibson and Sterling, I
enjoyed that alot

laurence of arabia
find it rather hard to read these days
feel like i have netflix glued right to my eyeballs
where is cybernanny hiding my remote
so i can have a thought of my own?
luckily theres vinyl its:

like a bird soaring above planes,
so vastly expanded views,
enabling to focus
on that very detail,
way down on the ground.

circling steadily,
leaping just gently, inside,
line after line,
devotedly find,
that long lost solitude.
