I have started reading a most wonderful book, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, by Robin Sloan, which is an enchanting blend of genres that I am still discovering. The following is a bit of the author's engrossing, gifted writing:
“But I kept at it with the help-wanted ads. My standards were sliding swiftly. At first I had insisted I would only work at a company with a mission I believed in. Then I thought maybe it would be fine as long as I was learning something new. After that I decided it just couldn't be evil. Now I was carefully delineating my personal definition of evil.”
I just may finish this book today!
