    Kate, YES! A video on Primateks.  I’m getting the hang of them, but they work in such a different way than my norm, I know I’m not getting the best use of them.

    Jennifer, you definitely need to try Sawyer.  He’s even Canadian!

    Kate, you might want to try him as well.  He isn’t an alien/spaceship kind of sci/fi writer.  More about the things science has learned about human nature.  The TV series Flash Forward (a few years back), was based off his book and dealt with how people would react if they could see a few seconds of their life 20 years in the future.  The TV show only lasted a short while because they tried to make it a conspiracy series.  Sawyer’s books are quiet – full of ideas.  In some ways, they are clumsy.  You can see that the publishers have insisted on some action and sometimes it seems tacked on.  Like many of the early Scifi writers, his characters can be a bit flat – they often represent all people rather than a discreet character.  But for me, it’s the ideas and the exploration of our society and basic emotions.  As I said, I almost always disagree with his conclusions, but I don’t care – it’s the very ideas he’s exploring that I find enchanting.

    I should add a rider that some of his ideas and conclusions might well offend, especially if you are religious.  He doesn’t attack any religion but does explore why we are religious.

    Sandra, if anyone who read Heinlein wasn’t some how a little offended at something He said, I’d have to predict the reader  was dead, lol. So if Sawyer is anything like that kind of offensive, I’ll take it! I’ll go look for his books now…

    Kate, I so agree about not being a sci fi reader but being a heinlein fan. I never did find any other writers that did it for me after the master, lol BUT I am so totally the girl to  come to for titles. You’re talking about I will fear no evil. Damn good book. Now I have a penchant to read a Heinlein. I so wish they’d all come on Kindle, I’d splurge and buy every one! I haven’t read “Friday” for a coon’s age, it’s my favorite. Gotta love a kick ass woman. ;o)

    Ooh, I just looked, they’ve FINALLY converted a bunch of Heinlein’s to Kindle.YAYAYAYAY.
