The Father-thing: Watch out for dubious duplicates of family members and the burrowing metal millipedes that control them. Drown the latter in kerosene, if found.

5 Out Of 5 STARS for The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson
The Wolves of Winter - Tyrell Johnson


Post-Apocalyptic Nuclear Winter
A Deadly Virus
Bioengineered Humans
An Awesome Dog Named Wolf (who isn't a wolf)
Tiny Splash of Romance
Reads More Like Older YA

With Audio Performed by Jayme Mattler






I loved this, I had no idea it was going to go in the direction it did, and I was so into it once it did.

What starts out as a typical end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it survival story in the Yukon takes a left turn into this secret (possibly government) cover-up.  Think...Dark Angel (you know the show with Jessica Alba) with augmented humans, with super abilities, who have escaped and just want to be left alone.  Mixed with a cold unforgiving backdrop of never-ending nuclear winter, and a super-virus that has killed a large percentage of the population that the government agency is still trying to find a cure for.  I, personally, found this unputdownable.  Other readers have said they found this to be slow, even boring, but I don't get it.  I listened to this, for the most part, in one day.  If that doesn't scream compelling...I don't know what does.

The Audio was seamlessly performed by Jayme Mattler, she fit the voice of the weirdly distinct MC, perfectly.  I hope the author decides to continue with this world he has created because I really want to know where he plans to take it.  I want more Lynn & Jax.  The possibilities this could go in have me stoked.  Please don't do what Dark Angel did and leave me hanging.

Do You Know Where Your Hair Extensions Come From? Let’s Find Out!

Hair extensions are bliss for people with thin hair or for those who want to add more volume or length to their natural hair. But do you know where these lustrous tresses come from? If you search online for a hair extension or wig, you’ll find out that the most popular sources are India, Brazil, and Peru.



Sources Of Human Hair Extensions

The luxury virgin hair extensions are mostly sourced from Brazil, voluminous hair from India and sleek weaves from European regions. But you will rarely see hair extensions from China being advertised, even though a large part of hair extensions comes from this part of the world. In fact, China is the biggest importer and exporter of human hair.
But why hair sourced from China is not publicized? This is because “Made in China” is considered to be a negative label in the market. It is rather marketed in a more glamorous way than displayed as a Chinese product.

Even the best hair salons, hair stylists and hair blogs will tell you that Chinese hair is coarsest. Instead, they will prefer you to go for similar-looking but shinier Filipino hair extensions. Brazilian hair is said to be full-bodied with some bounce, whereas Indian hair comes with a versatile and natural luster. All the collected hair extensions from these countries are further sold to Eastern European countries like Romania, Ukraine, and Russia.


Types Of Hair Extensions


  • Tape-in extensions: These extensions are taped into your natural hair for extra volume and length. You can wash and style these extensions like natural hair, as medical-grade adhesive, known as surgical tape, hold them firmly.
  • Clip-in extensions: You can fix human hair extensions clip-in within 10 minutes and easily remove them at night. These hair extensions come in all sorts of budgets – from low to high.
  • Natural wefted ROW extensions: A weft of human hair extensions is attached to your hair by little copper tubes to add length and volume.
  • Micro beaded extensions: The individual small beads are held into your hair for extra volume and length. These beads are small enough to disappear in your natural hair.
  • Keratin fusion bonded extensions: The tiny sections of keratin bonded human hair are fixed to your hair and further bonded with a conventional fusion tool.


Virgin, Remy or Standard Hair

From human hair extensions cheap to high-end hair extensions, there are so many variables available in the market. The quality of these hair extensions depends on their sources.

In the market, “virgin” hair or hair that is not chemically treated remains in demand. Besides, Remy hair, which is shaved or cut directly from the donor’s head, is another in-demand hair for extensions.

On the other hand, standard hair, also known as comb waste, is collected from combs or plugholes. However, these are low-quality hair and utilized for making low-priced hair extensions.


Should I Go For Hair Extensions?

While some people are still ridiculed by the idea of using other people’s hair on their head, certain individuals require hair extensions to boost their self-esteem. However, a “yuk” factor is still associated with wearing other person’s hair. Plus, the entire supply chain is covered in secrecy from start to end. So, if you’re willing to go for hair extensions, do get them from a reliable and reputed hair salon known for offering the best hair toupees or extensions.

Human Is?: A Philip K. Dick Reader (Gollancz S.F.) - Philip K. Dick

Paycheck: a gem of a little story. It's always interesting with older SF to see what was forecast successfully and what was completely wrong. Here, the epoint of the sgtory is the average Joe - or Jane - becoming caught between the increasingly intrusive power of government and the equally intrusive power of giant corporations - spot on! On the other hand, work place smoking bans? Women being more than wives and secretaries? PKD didn't see those coming.


There's a film of the same name based on this. They kept most of the essential ideas and dumped most of the details. It's by John Woo; very flashy, not much substance.
