Downbelow Station - C. J. Cherryh
Vivid, realistic science fiction.
Creativity, Inc - Ed Catmull, Amy Wallace
Some fascinating stories from the earliest days of computer graphics, the creation of Pixar, its ultimate success and well beyond. I wonder if the many analogies to describe the mental models people have at Pixar to do their job is useful for anyone except those people.
The Midnight Zoo - Sonya Hartnett
Well written, chilling, vivid.
Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth - Reza Aslan
Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I have not come to bring peace, but the sword. MATTHEW 10:34
