Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Numerous Authors Ride Together

Noah's Ride is one Western novel, created by 12 authors, each supplying a chapter, one by one as the story evolved. Elmer Kelton seemed to be the editor.

Our discussion of Noah’s Ride had lots of participation. We discussed how the book was created, with the numerous authors, and we mentioned other collaborative books. Although there was some difference noticeable among the various chapters written by different authors, most of us seemed not to find the stylistic differences to be a major factor in reading the book. We did find some faults with the book, mostly involving the characters, who were not only literally black or white, but were figuratively black or white, ie, totally good or evil. Most of us found the story compelling though and enjoyed the book for its level of excitement and plot.
