My Favourite Texts, Reports, and Stories

Here on this page are a bunch of links to texts, reports, and (you guessed it) stories that I have enjoyed reading throughout the years for a number of reasons. The main reason why I may enjoy some text is mostly going because it is about tech being used in a positive way, another is if it could have only been written then and there, such as with "Protect and Survive", that is about what to do if a nuclear weapon has been used and the threat of fallout; very 1980s.

Other times, I enjoy reading texts that are off-the-wall crazy, such as with Sylvia Driskell vs Homosexuals, who wanted to sue every homosexual for being gay.
