studentcaprino on On Thrones of Gold
The wayang kulit, the javanse version in particular is an ancient old theater art form. Having it unglued makes it more accessible

Nataschrist on The Doom Patrol Omnibus
This is one of Grant Morrison's first "classics." I know this without reading it, and I desperately want to. This, and then on to The Invisibles, show the personal, spiritual, intellectual, and most importantly Magickal journey that Morrison had started, but now was incorporating into his "mundane" work. This is where I believe he first started to think of the art of the comic book would be the perfect vector for launching a Sigil, or as with The Invisibles, a Hypersigil.

On my blog, I <a href="https://go-to-hellman.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-best-ebook-of-2015-what-is-code.html/">argue the case</a> for this being the best ebook of 2015.

pollinpollin14 on TypeScript Deep Dive
The book is not neither deep nor definitive guide as is said at github repository. The good and funny part is as it shows the javascript code generate by TypeScript's compiler. But there are a lot of of bad things. Between they are:

* Several misspellings and typo errors
* Assumes a lot of knowlogment of the reader
* Uses concepts before explicate them and it says if it will be explicated in other chapter.
* In the impress version (PDF) the index is useless because it has not numbers of the pages only the chapter number
* The examples are very simple and poor explication. I can remember "currying* and "tuplas" examples that does not show the real value of this concepts
* Some code examples require horizontal scroll and the impress version they are cut

I do not recommend this book. I think is better read the official documentation.

LenBakerloo on Calling All Irregulars
I wrote this book because I have come to believe that most “news” today does most people more harm than good. Although some news is useful, if the harm exceeds the good, then its “net worth” is less than zero – and that is what I mean by “worthless.”

However this case is hard to make in a straightforward fashion. It can’t be done in a Tweet, a Facebook post, or even a 500 word essay, and that is part of the problem: The “news” has shortened attention spans – everything interrupts everything else – and that makes it hard to gather your thoughts.

But people still tolerate long-form escapist fiction, and that is why I’ve decided to create a series of detective stories whereby Mr. Sherlock Holmes will present the evidence, and you will see if you can figure it out for yourself.

In the Case of the Worthless Newspaper series you will learn how to distinguish between a hypothesis and a truth; an opinion and a fact; a reasoned argument and a verbal fistfight. You will learn how to dig into a story to find its relevance and meaning. And you will regain a sense that you can make a difference. Your world is your oyster where irritants don’t need to drive you crazy but rather – with a little skill and hard work – you can turn those irritants into pearls.

The first in the series is called Calling All Irregulars because, as with Conan Doyle’s original character, this modern day Sherlock needs the help of his band of misfits to help take responsibility for the news and hack it. You can read this book as a confection, if you wish, or you can treat it as a puzzle book that poses more than 45 questions for you to solve on your own or in collaboration with others.

Calling All Irregulars is particularly appropriate as a book worth discussing in a class on civics, business, or journalism.

Or you can just read and invent your own uses.

Sherlock Holmes would say, “The game is afoot; there is no time to waste.” This free edition comes with a money-back guarantee so you have nothing to lose.

arjaybe on Parasite Puppeteers
Thank you, Neil. There will be another one. I know generally what's going to happen, and I've been taking notes, but I haven't started to write it down yet. Don't hold your breath, though. I'm a bit slow.-)

Neil.Richards on Parasite Puppeteers
Hi arjaybe!

You're welcome! I enjoyed Green Comet very much, and Parasite Puppeteers is looking good so far (though I've just barely started :-) ).

Interesting that the personal message didn't go through; the notification from unglueit seems to be working fine. I check my account and everything seems fne there. A little mystery I guess.

I hope you're writing the next one, I doubt I'll be satisfied with just two stories :-).

I posted this over on the Green Comet page too.

Thanks again to all the supporters and ungluers. Special thanks to Neil.Richards, who unglued both Green Comet and Parasite Puppeteers yesterday. I sent you a personal message, but it reported that it failed to go. Both here and via GC. Consider this my thanks to you. Your gesture, and that of all the other supporters, mean a lot to me.
