Hi Chris, thanks for mentioning your book. I'll definitely check it out. I have a new book out too. I think it's fantastic to see so many people writing about atheism.

I'm "Doc" and I'm interested in compiling a list of books appropriate for preschoolers and younger children.

Would you please help out buy emailing your selection ideas to or send me your choice right here through our own Nexus email.

Please remember to include the complete Title, Author and (if known) the book Publisher.

Thanks a heep...

So, when will we select a new book for the book club? I mean, we're in September now...

Howdy, bookworms!

I'm new, but I have a question that is coincidentally appropriate. I dig a bunch of authors, but rarely can find out what they believe (or not) by their writings. Specifically, today I'm wondering about one of my faves, John Crowley. Anybody know where he stands with regards to gods, ghosts, or other spiritual matters? From Engine Summer, I get a hint of implicit atheism with overt antitheistic overtones, but his other novels can get pretty far out into paranormal or other spiritual feelings. Any thoughts?

Have anyone here ever read some book written by Machado de Assis?
Comment by Jared Smith on July 30, 2008 at 7:50pm
Cats Cradle huh? This is one of my favorite Vonnegut books. Hell, I'll read it again. I look forward to discussing it with you fine people.
Comment by Cherie Taylor on July 27, 2008 at 7:56am
Cat's Cradle will be a departure from my usual reading list (history, political, suspense etc) Not too many sci fi books on my book shelf, but as I look at the synopsis of the book, sounds like this is a great introduction to the genre! Look forward to discussing the book.

At the risk of being accused of shameless self-promotion, I would like to invite all my fellow atheists to avail themselves of a copy of LIFE, DEATH AND OTHER TRIVIA, Outrageous Opinions of a Wicked Old Broad. Although it's mostly humorous (I've even offered a money-back guarantee if it doesn't make the reader laugh) it does have a "serious" chapter called "The Religion Delusion" which outlines my rise to atheism. You can order it at or, if you'd like a signed copy, message me here or by email at and I'll give you shipping details. Thanks.
