The ability to reach across the world and find people with similar interests has greatly benefited, people with rare sexual fetishes, religious extremists, and book readers alike.
As a young man I could discuss my favourite fantasy books with a tiny number of my small circle of friend. Now a mouse click or two will bring me to a forum where scores of strangers are ready with their opinions, observations, and open minds (sometimes).
It's great. Though it does remove some of the need to demand that the people I know read the books I like.
However with my latest read, the excellent Books of Babel.
Book 1: Senlin Ascends
Book 2: Arm of the Sphinx
I find that I have fallen into a time-warp. The books are self-published and currently have a tiny readership. And as such I'm having difficulty finding anyone to reinforce my belief that they are startlingly good. It's like being in the 80s!
Help me out by making these books popular.
