    He was the last great hero of his generation. Velma Martinez - Velveteen - had never intended to be a great hero, but she was out of choices. "Hello, Jolly Roger." "Hello, bunny-eared girl who's taken over my ship. Have you come to collect the bounty on my head?" "I've come because Dame Fortuna told me how to find you, and we need your help." Velveteen crossed her arms. "The Super Patriots are corrupt, and I think Marketing is evil, and they have my best friend, and we want her back."

    I love reluctant hero's and its rare to find a female one at that. The first book was made up of short stories and read as a bunch of short stories. This second book however has the feel of a novel and after finishing it I am looking forward to another one.
    This book is easy to get into and well thought out. A total joy.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.

    What did you love best about The Alchemy of Air?

    History as a great story. It is amazing how if Hollywood hasn't made a movie about it, it doesn't exist. Worked at a place where one of these amazing machines pumped out ammonia nitrate day and night and had no idea how the haber-Bosch invention had changed/impacted the world I live in.

    FNH Audio presents a complete and unabridged reading of H.P. Lovecraft's famous story "At the Mountains of Madness". The story is related by one of the two survivors from a polar expedition. Unlike other polar explorers who may have died from cold, starvation or simply getting lost, in this story things are somewhat different.The survivor is desperate to prevent a new polar expedition because there are "beings" there, strange murderous beings.

    Would you listen to At the Mountains of Madness again? Why?

    This is the genisis of all those stories like The Thing, Alien vs Preditor. There is nothing like discovering where all the great sc-fi horror has come from. This is the seed of so much of what I have read in the last 20 years. In the begining there was Lovecraft.

    In the near future, a signal is detected coming from the Alpha Centauri system. Mysterious, unintelligible data streams in for ten years. Heather Davis, a professor in the University of Toronto psychology department, has devoted her career to deciphering the message. Her estranged husband, Kyle, is working on the development of artificial intelligence systems and new computer technology utilizing quantum effects to produce a near-infinite number of calculations simultaneously.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Wil Wheaton reading a story about self aware trek type personel who have realised that if you go on an away mission and arent one of the chosen few you will die and horribly. And probably pointlessly. If you like trek next gen and are aware of the red shirt mythos you cant help but be curious. For me John Scalzi delivers the goods with the story Wil wipes the floor with his delivery.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Redshirts?

    Finishing with multiple perspectives was a bit of a jolt but made it feel complete by the end.


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    A drunken Kransky discussing his numerous near death events.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Totally wanted to listen from beginning to end. Damn my life interupting!


    Any additional comments?

    Will be listening again today.
