'Entangled Life' Jim, by Merlin Sheldrake (good druid name there). It's about fungi.
It is a kickass name innit?

Reading Isaac Asimov's I Robot.

Sometime around the year 2030...
"Destroy all sixty-three [robots]," said the robopsychologist coldly and flatly, "and make an end of it."
Bogart drew back a corner of his mouth. "You mean destroy thirty thousand dollars per robot?"
Whoah there, that's some serious money! :hehe:

I'm re-reading an SF series by Julian May called the Saga of the Exiles, and a companion series, The Galactic Milieu. It's been a long time since I read them - they are still very interesting...

Don't have the pics, but my current reads are some collections of stories by Ramsey Cambell, likely best known for creating Goatswood and Brichester, and giving the Cthulhu mythos a country home in the Severn valley.

Both series are big and lush, somewhat overblown perhaps, but still of the first rank, IMO...

We are not stingy with vowels. When you have long vowel you write 2. Same with consonants.
