Re: Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

I absolutely hated Hemmingway's A Farewell To Arms. We were made to read it in my English class and it is one of the worst books I've ever read. I even stopped reading for homework! I have also read the Odyssey and can say I disliked that. I will definitely have to read some older authors to study t...

Re: Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

You're absolutely right about that. I have a strong disdain for a lot of pop culture (which explains why I love metal so much). It's funny you mention this because I recall a recent English class where we discussed why people read. The resounding answer from most was because it was popular. Pop cult...

Re: Scrivener for Android

When the Android project is far enough along, will you offer a beta test because I would be more than than happy to do a beta test.

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

Xubuntu 12.04 LTS and Xubuntu 12.10 daily build. Xubuntu is the best linux distro imo.

Re: Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

I thoroughly enjoyed both 'interview..' & "the vampire lestat'. You'd have to put a gun to my head to get me to pick up that twilight nonsense. :P Right on! I'm right there with you. If you haven't already read it, the Queen of the Damned follows those two and I strongly recommend it to yo...

Re: Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

Ah I see what you mean. Although I myself am merely 15, I have no appreciation for twilight, yet I love Rice's work. I don't know if that's because I'm weird or something else but that's beside the point. It is maybe a difficult comparison to make. I would agree with you a bit on that. Rice has much...

Scrivener for Android

Contrary to popular belief, Android is the most used mobile OS in the world. I see that an iOS version is being created, so why not an Android version? It would make a lot of sense considering. Android is good enough for some to fully function as a laptop (I use my Transformer prime often as one), s...

Re: No luck - Kubuntu 12.04

I'm using Xubuntu 12. 04 LTS and I tried to upgrade from an older scrivener beta but it didn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it worked fine. Try downloading the .deb package again from the link above (It's the second of two announcements) and installing it through the Ubuntu software center.

Re: Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

Is this in part a target audience thing you are referring to as well? I don't think the Twilight novels were written to the same audience as Rice's, but I'll freely admit to have never read Meyer's work, and it's been a good solid 13 or so years since I've picked up any Rice. I'm not sure what you ...

Anne Rice vs. Stephenie Meyer

We all know that vampire novels have gained widespread infamy because of the Twilight saga. You either love it or you hate it. But what about when vampire novels were good? I would argue that Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles were the height of vampire novels, and Twilight was the low point. I would li...
