Chocky by John Wyndham: review

"You should be employing your resources, while you still have them, to tap and develop the use of the source of power which is not finite.Once you have access to an infinite supply of power you will have broken out of the closed circle of your solar-economy. You will no longer be isolated and condemned to eventual degeneration upon a waisting asset. You will become a part of the larger creation, for a source of infinite power is a source of infinite possibilities." Chocky by John Wyndham

"She had a huge bouffant of copper hair, and a midwesterner's sense of proportionality when it came to eye shadow and rouge. She was the kind of woman who could call you 'honey' and make it sound like 'Islamofascist faggot." Makers, Cory Doctorow. Love it!

"The nearest approach to decoration was a number of wooden panels from Repetances, artistically burnt into them. The one on the left of the fireplace read: ONLY THE IMAGE OF GOD IS MAN. The one on the right: KEEP PURE THE STOCK OF THE LORD. On the opposite wall two more said:BLESSED IS THE NORM and IN PURITY OUR SALVATION. the largest one was hung to face the door... It reminded everyone who came in: WATCH THOU FOR THE MUTANT!"
