“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

The boundless imagination of Gary L. M. Martin

I try to read as often as I can, which is strangely more of a challenge when I’m not working than it is when I was, for various reasons – mostly due to the lack of personal autonomy. As a result, my ability to read outside of a select few...

The Didact’s Best Books of 2019

It’s time to go through my reading list for 2019 and pick the best books of the year in both the Fiction and Non-Fiction categories. After all, it’s time for the traditional festivities around here, and tradition dictates that I go through the books that I...

Corporate chemotherapy

Our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH), Voxemort the Malevolent, is not someone that you want to piss off. You would think that, after being defeated and humiliated in epic and repeated fashion by the SDL and his legions, his enemies would learn from...

Atheism is boring

Apparently the small-screen adaptation of famous atheist Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series is pretty unwatchable, because absolutely nothing happens of any consequence to anybody: HBO’s latest fantasy offering is an adaptation of Phillip Pullman’s...

Didact’s Book List 2018

The Didact’s Best Books of 2018

And here we are again, at the end of another year, where it is time for me to follow my usual tradition, stretching back a whole five years (!!!) and put together a list of my favourite books from the past 12 months for everyone (who can be bothered to read any...

The 12-Rule Path of the Crazy Christ

I finished reading the latest release by our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) some time last week, and I have to say that out of all of the books of his that I have read, this one might just be the most polarising yet. That is both inevitable and...

Book bombing

I am honestly a bit depressed and disillusioned by politics these days, no thanks to the ongoing shitshow that is the Kavanaugh confirmation process and its extraordinarily terrible implications for the future of the country that I love. So I figured it’s time...

Soldier of the Federation

So I’m reading STARSHIP TROOPERS (again, for the umpteenth time), because it is, of course, the greatest military science fiction novel ever written, as well as one of the most important lessons in civics and politics ever put to paper. And it has occurred...
