About D C Arnold

David Christopher Arnold is probably legally insane and definitely proud of it. Society's idea of sanity bores him. He is a cobbled-together working-class philosopher who looks at the current system and thinks internet-enabled folk can do much better.

He attempts, within human constraints, to be reasonable and objective in all things, except when he pokes fun at them. But reasonable and objective can and should take love, compassion, joy, happiness, brotherhood, all those things into account. That's why he is an atheist, too - a god that keeps you where you are with all sorts of rarely-sensible rules doesn't seem very interested in your happiness.

On dogs or cats:
The book Dies the Fire by S.M. Sterling called cats basically small, furry Republicans with an inborne aversion to change.

Review by: W. A. Patterson on March 18, 2010 :
A good book and fun to read. Funny for those who like light and humorous fantasy. The concepts are well thought-out and explained. A good skill at world-building and the suspension-of-disbelief. I don't agree with all the characters's opinions and ideas, but it was an engaging story that kept me reading so it gets 5 stars for that. A good ride once you get on it.

A fun read. Bought for a vacation, and very much up to the task. Hilariously funny in places, especially for geeks like me.

Fun, light and fast paced read. Credible first try. Gave me a comic book feel and made me to laugh out loud at some places. Enjoy.
