I’m having driving lessons at the moment which is basically a good thing but my driving instructor is pretty objectionable. I mean he’s always going on about how terrible immigration is etc (ffs) but he went so far as to complain that the Romans were “poofs”
Come on mate
Being a dick about modern immigration is one thing but YOU SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN OVER THE FREAKING ROMANS BY NOW
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
I was tagged by hey-lethallan. Thank you for tagging me! :)
The Pern series - Anne McCaffrey. They were a very big deal for me when I was a teenager.
The Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins. I know, he’s Richard Dawkins which is a problem, but his writing is good just as long as he stays within his area of biology and doesn’t try to know anything about people.
The Moomin books - Tove Jansson. The thing that I love about these books is how full they are of moments that you will remember forever.
The World’s Wife - Carol Ann Duffy. People who love fierce and interesting women, this one will touch you too.
The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy in five parts - Douglas Adams. I met most of the people I now consider my family at a Douglas Adams university society so that one was very important for me.
The Jeeves books - PG Wodehouse. The thing that it important about these books is how rapturously good and hilarious the prose is.
Bad Science - Ben Goldacre. I read this at precisely the right time in my life. I’m with all those people who say this should be required reading for anybody who wants to talk about science or medicine in basically any capacity.
Staying Alive - Neil Astley (editor). There’s like the maximum of great stuff in here.
Machine Sex and other stories - Candas Jane Dorsey. Nobody has read this apart from people who I’ve persuaded to read it! It’s wonderful though! Weird woman-focused sci fi short stories.
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami. As if Kafka is the best Murakami book. Pffft.

Was it stated somewhere in Asunder that animals are better at perceiving/remembering Cole than the sentient races or is have I just made that up because of the whole animals-sensing-ghosts cliché?
Also I just realised that I wrote Hawke rather than hawk under that photo even though it was a real hawk. There is no hope for me
