So not only was today starting off hectic as usual, but...

I go to check on the snakes downstairs, and my yearling male whitesided bullsnake has escaped from his bin. (Thanks animal plastics!)

So I tore the entire room apart, thinking oh hell, he probably got outside or got eaten by one of the cats. Although he is awfully big to be eaten by one of the cats.
With the room in shambles, I'm about ready to give up, be depressed, and angry at myself over his loss-then I hear "rustle rustle bump!" coming from the direction of my set of 3 six-foot book shelves in the OPPOSITE corner of the room, the middle one of which I removed, thinking he might have crept between the bookshelves and behind one of them-they have hollow spots under the toekicks-and at first, didn't see anything.
I couldn't move the other two bookshelves, as they have far too much crap on them and weigh 100+lbs each, so I shook one of them-and a head popped out from behind my inflatable spa-globe! What a little brat-he managed to not only make it across a 500 sq. foot room without the cats eating him, but also up a 6 foot bookcase and was sleeping on the very top, out in the open.

Here I was, reading the "how to find an escaped snake" page, checking along walls, in corners, in boxes, and he was sitting up there the whole time, probably silently laughing at me.
I honestly think my cats are super lazy, or afraid of snakes. This is the upteenth time I've had a 3'+ snake get loose (none that can hurt my cats, mind you-just ones too large to be kitty chow) and not a scratch on the snake.
I can't wait til we get the whole snake room finished, so I can close the darn door to it and keep the cats out.
So, anyone have any scifi or 'other religious' books they are looking for? I have a zillion to sell-they are taking up lots of freakin space here.

Yes, but no money to buy them with :-(
I'm glad you found your snake, though. Usually I find my escapees a few months later, hungry, but not really any worse off than before. I once had a 5 to 6 foot long boa constrictor loose in my car for a couple months. I couldn't find him until he decided to crawl out from under the glovebox compartment in the parking lot of a hardware store. I had to pull this super-strong snake out from the innards of the car and then drive home without letting him get away again. Another time I had a large female bull snake loose in my car for the better part of spring and summer. And once, when I was driving, a large wild gopher snake I had caught that morning came slithering out of the steering collumn straight towards my privates!

To email me, take out the trash.

I can actually hear Jenn's hysterical laughter upon reading this. More like maniacal. Emotion: stick out tongue
Tommy and I just unpacked our sci-fi paperbacks, and this time wedidn't stck them three-deep on the bookshelves. We've had to buy **** 6 foot shelves!!!

Precisely why we dedicated our spare bedroom to be a "library". I mean to cover the remaining walls bookshelves and get a proper footstool for the top shelves!
But seriously, I'm seeking some cyberpunk, some fantasy, and some horror. Planning to post a booklist? Emotion: smile

Cyberpunk started out a futuristic sub-genre of science fiction geek books. Common themes are nanotechnology, highly advanced computing, and virtual reality. Over-industrialized over-populated semi-realistic views of a not-too-distant future. The term was coined by the author William Gibson. Other very popular cyberpunk authors include Bruce Sterling, Neal Stephenson, John Shirley, and Rudy Rucker.

Cyberpunk now includes video games and movies. "Hackers" could be considered in the cyberpunk genre, as is "The Matrix". Cyberpunk can also be a lifestyle and clothing choice... think of the costume of Angelina Jolie in Hackers.
My cyberpunk favorites (in order of favoritism) that you should run right out and obtain a copy of:
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
The Diamond Age, or A Young Girl's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson
Neuromancer by William Gibson (this book is considered the root of cyberpunk)
Count Zero by William Gibson
Idoru by William Gibson
Heavy Weather by Bruce Sterling
