    It's interesting how much shit Hancock takes from scientists for his views.

    I'm currently reading The Children of Men (P.D. James) and it's blowing me away. It packs far more depth than the movie. It also feels thematically prescient given the current refugee crisis.

    I'm looking forward to checking this out. I love Atwood's brand of science fiction.

    I agree - the kooksphere is fascinating. His brand of pseudo-archeology can offer really stirring glimpses into what-might-be - of course a lot of its foundation is pattern-seeking/confirmation bias.

    I blame my parents giving me a copy of Worlds in Collision too young for getting me into these kinds of writers..;) Of course now i enjoy them even more as a critical reader - though I was certainly less so when I was 16!

    Anyone got a copy of Infinite Jest they want to let go of?

    I like to read something from the Man Booker prize shortlist every year and this jumped out at me. I'm about 30 pages in and I've read a lot of reviews about how soul crushingly depressing it is, so now I'm slightly nervous!

    He is excellent on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Also check out Randall Carlson. Both he and Hancock appeared together on JRE recently. Fascinating stuff.

    Just finished Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke (again). The recent SyFy miniseries did not do it justice.

    Reading LOTR (again). Great book save the singing bits.

    I really liked the LOTR. As the archetype upon which all other modern fantasy followed from it can't be beat.

    But as I got older re-reads became less and less interesting - I really feel the depth of characterization and the exploration of more complex morality in modern fantasy leaves the classic feeling, well, a little TOO classic sometimes!

    That said maybe I should pick em up again with an open mind.

    After seeing the movies maybe the books will be interesting to read as I think my last read was in the late 90s, before the first movie anyway.

    And I bet the books, aging as they have, still havent aged quite as quickly as the LOTR movies have, almost none of their lustre is left for me!
