Wendy Beach knows how to write a good story. Her depictions are for the lack of a better word excellent! She makes the pictures she creates with her words come alive in vivid color, and it's accompanied with a profound statement on how life should be viewed. She is gifted.

Funny and interesting. And I have deleted my old review. The reason for which is: My native language is norwegian, and the way mr. Holden writes is "illegal" in norwegian, so I assumed it had to be a no no in american english - turns out I was completely wrong and I apologize.

When I started to read this book I didn't know what to expect. However halfway through the first chapter I got the feeling it was going to be good, and it totally was! I couldn't put it down. I read the first 2 chapters before bed last night, and the rest in one sitting today. Needless to say it was hard to put it down( I did when going to the veranda to have a cigarette), but other than that I read it uninterrupted.
I wouldn't be surprised to one day see this guys books printed on paper. Dick Grimm's got everything he needs to become a best-selling author, and I really hope he does one day. This kind of writing is rare. He is original and eloquent, and last but not least he's got a sense of humor. And that's important when telling such a dark story.
My only and single objection is the title 'Slutshame'. I can't see how it could be marketed outside North-America with that title, but I guess that will be the problem of his future publisher, if he doesn't already have one...

An interesting look at the possible future of gaming, but also a warning about game-addiction. At least that is what I got out of it. Brett P.S. seems like a capable writer. But I haven't gotten around to Extremophile and Alter Ego yet, but it is on my list. I find Brett P.S. interesting enough to warrent a few more stories.....
A Week And A Day In The Lives Of Two Angry Young Men

The story was ok. I'm not sure I liked the diary/letter form you've chosen to use, which is in fact the reason I'm not gving it 4 stars (call me old fashioned). It could have been done "normally" with better results, at least I think so. Was a completely ok story though. I will check out some more of your stories. I'm sure there is a gem in your work somewhere...
Twas A Good Day To Die

A well told story. How ever this sentence: "Around each picture silver and gold tinsel hangs and various other small Christmas decorations shine and sparkle on the large wooden mantelpiece that stands in the middle of the room." Almost gave me a headache. 30 words! And not a comma or punctuation in sight. It's not to judge, because I do things like that myself sometimes. However it's in the first paragraph of the story. Had it been later it would have mattered less. I'm sure this mistake has lost you readers, because it happens while your job is still to capture me, and I almost put it down because of it. I did keep reading, and it was a good story. I just wonder, how many stopped at that point? You should mend your book sir.
Cross Platform Game Development with MonoGame

Probably one of the best free ebooks on the subject. However if you are new to programming, one should get a basic understanding of object-oriented programming before starting on this one. I would say this book is for non-game programmers who want to start game programming
Invisible Friend (A Pastafarian Sermon)
on Sep. 10, 2016
Poorly formatted neo-atheistic nonsense. It is more or less a work of fiction with basis in the idea that since there is no God, all religions must be the same, thus placing every religion of the world in the same ideological basket. I'll give it one star based solely on the fact that the author managed to convert it into an eBook.
A Memorable Teeth Cleaning

It had its moments, but the ending attempts to be funny, but fails. The writing is not bad though, but should have been revised. Needs a better ending...

Liked it. Was a good story, well written, about the reality of all too many people
