For those of you who've been reading my book reviews over the years, you might notice that I'm a fan of Gary Beck's poetry. He's a prolific writer and he tackles the most relevant social and political issues facing us today. His new collection of poems, Virtual Living, is no exception, although it does take a new slant for its overarching theme: it explores technology and how it impacts society and the natural world. That's not to say the collection shies away from Mr. Beck's usual themes tackling politics and the modern world, but it does so through the lens of technology and how it impacts people. It was interesting to see Mr. Beck's take on tech as a force for change in all walks of life, big and small.
If you'd like to know more, you can read a full review of Mr. Beck's collection here at Bewildering Stories. I hope you enjoy reading Mr. Beck's collection as much as I did.
I read a lot - depending on my writing schedule, I can usually read about a book a day. Some of the books are fantastic and I would love to recommend to everyone - some, not so much. Either way, I thought I would share a few thoughts on what I'm reading at the moment.
