CURRENTLY READING


Don Quixote

My little trick to teleport to Spain when I need to quickly.

 

Data Visualisation

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


The World Inside
by Robert Silverberg

Guilty of re-reading this numerous times, each time I do I think we are edging a little closer to this world.

 

The Last Starship from Earth
by John Boyd

I’m saying nothing, just read this if you can find a copy for a terrific surprise.

 

Any collected works of W.H. Auden

His entire personality is poetry. Somebody asked him once what he thought of himself. He quickly replied that he ‘had a face that looked like a wedding cake that had been left out in the rain’ – I think that’s all I needed to look further. I will be grateful until the oceans are folded and hung up to dry that I did.
