Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

About two weeks ago, my friend, co-author and soon to be co-(statics, connection lost) Alex from Clockworker pointed me towards Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It sounded intriguing enough to read it in spite of my 50+ books backlist. Ready Player One The book has been out since 2011 …

Review: Victor Sierra – Yesterday's Tomorrow
