Literary Birthday – 19 December – Robin Sloan


Happy Birthday, Robin Sloan, born 19 December 1979

Five Quotes

  1. Walking the stacks in a library, dragging your fingers across the spines — it’s hard not to feel the presence of sleeping spirits.
  2. You know, I’m really starting to think the whole world is just a patchwork quilt of crazy little cults, all with their own secret spaces, their own records, their own rules.
  3. All the secrets of the world worth knowing are hiding in plain sight.
  4. I’ve never listened to an audiobook before, and I have to say it’s a totally different experience. When you read a book, the story definitely takes place in your head. When you listen, it seems to happen in a little cloud all around it, like a fuzzy knit cap pulled down over your eyes
  5. Our books still do not require batteries. But I am no fool. It is a slender advantage.
