Fun Books

62 Projects To Make With A Dead Computer coverIf you are like most people who enjoy computers and technology, you have gradually gathered a collection of computers and electronics that don't quite work well enough to be used for their original use, but may not be broken enough that you feel good about disposing of them. Also, at least for me, small broken items like keyboards, mice and small electronics don't seem worth a trip to the electronics disposal center in their own right so they build up gathering dust until something larger breaks. Randy Sarafan has come to our rescue with directions and ideas to recycle these items ourselves, turning e-waste into useful household items and personal accessories with 62 Projects To Make With A Dead Computer (and Other Discarded Electronics): The Eco-Friendly Guide for Today's Techno-Crafter.

cover of Dawn of the DreadfulsZombies have captured the imagination of technical professionals. Steve Hockensmith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls is a fun zombie romp based on Jane Austin's Bennet family. While it may not qualify as literature like the original classic Pride and Prejudice, it's a fun read that provides a fuller picture of the Bennets as well as a fun zombie romp.

cover of Android KareninaAs someone whose career involves adding to the technology that surrounds us (hopefully in a positive way), I am deeply interested in how technology changes our lives for better or worse. Android Karenina by Leo Tolstoy and Ben H. Winters explores these issues in a well-written historical urban fantasy novel of fantastic technology, robots, cyborgs, and aliens.
