He also wrote a fantasy noire series, the John Justin Mallory stories and alternate history books with Teddy Roosevelt. Although in recent years he is become better known as the editor of anthologies, he is an author in his own right who has produced about 20 far-future novels, including the oracle trilogy, the Widow Maker series and the Velvet Comet series. He also wrote a fantasy noire series, the John Justin Mallory stories and alternate history books with Teddy Roosevelt. By setting most of his books in the far future (unspecified but possibly 6000-8000 years), spread across the galaxy, Resnick is able to credibly draw in aliens (who do not feature heavily in his books, it must be said), mutants of all shapes and sizes and of course augmented humans, tricked out with the latest in implant technology as well as many gadgets, the science of which is explained believably without too much emphasis on the 'hard science' aspect of sci-fi. His far-future world is divided clearly into two distinct arenas. On the one side is the Oligarchy, a sprawling collection of humanity that spans countless planets across the galaxy - basically the standard far-future world of so many writers. On the other is the inner frontier, a far-future version of the old west with outlaws, gamblers, bounty hunters and lawmen. With the occasional mention of politics, the various currencies used throughout the galaxy, the many references to historic characters from the previous thousands of years, Resnick manages to make the future a totally consistent world similar to our own in so many ways. These books are packed with action and will probably appeal most to male readers. They are mostly "boys own" type adventures although he also wrote a prize-winning romance, The Dark Lady. If Resnick has the one failure it's that his heroes, despite their well defined flaws, are simply too perfect but since this is what we expect of heroes, this is a minor criticism at best.

The early morning call got over and I was too much frustrated, as I was not at all required for the call and the expectation was detailed beforehand. I was getting ready to reach office and the nagging account personal was not even able to hold for few minutes and was calling me to check whether I have reached office or not. I was again frustrated, as I got all required information last day itself and would start working on it once I have reached office, but still these nagging account personnel were behind me for each and every update. Now, I reached office and called the delivery expert to check on the status and it hardly took few mins for me to get the expectations and was already working on it. I have finished my work earlier than my expected deadline and I don’t want to share it with the team, because they would come up with unnecessary changes and I shared the final deck only few minutes before the call. As expected the account team came up with some silly changes and these changes could have been done by themselves. Finally, I finished the deck and shared it the with whole accounts team for review and closed it off. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

I work working from home on a weekend and added to my frustration was that office Skype was not connecting to the server, had to login Skype from personal laptop and share screen through WebEx. With all these difficulties, I finally managed to finish the deck and could match the onsite accounts team’s expectations. The deck was finally submitted to the client early in week and as a standardized process in our team, I have been advised to get final deck from the delivery expert and I have reaching the delivery expert for sharing the final deck. Another weekend came and I was scared about the work, even though I still reached out to the delivery expert for the final deck and I have been conveyed it would be shared over weekend. I went to native for the weekend and used to check office mails occasionally and was hoping to get the final deck or some mail recognizing my work. To my surprise, while returning back to office on Monday while traveling I was shocked to see surprise mail in my inbox and to continue reading, please visit “G R Team Sites” listed right section of this site.

While I was packing my bags to escape from Chennai rains I heard someone ringing my doorbell and was sheet shocked to see that person at my door step. It was none other than my office colleague who has travelled from a long distance to check about my situation at my apartment. I felt refreshing and told him that I was planning to drive through the knee deep water to get out from Chennai and he said he would be with me guiding me in the water and if possible would join me in the drive. So, now I had enough confidence to drive in the water and took my car out of my apartment and drove the car into water. However, the drive was not as complicated as I thought and it was smoother as drove out of water within few seconds. After 3 days of struggle I was able to finally sense of freedom and to enjoy it, my colleague joins with me for the drive to my native. At halfway he got down at his nearest bus stop to reach his home and finally I have also reached home safely. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites” listed in the sidebar.

So, for the readers who were not aware of what’s happening, I own an iPhone 6 which I bought 4 years back and the battery was replaced under the Apple’s replacement program. The new iPhone was about to be launched at 12th September 2018 and there have been lot of rumors about the features and functionalities of the phone. However, none of the features and functionalities were tempting as it used for earlier iPhone's and during Steve Jobs era. The only thing which motivates me to buy the new iPhone is the camera setup and ageing iPhone 6 design. I didn’t want to upgrade to the new iPhone, due to its expensiveness and new technology being upgraded for every year. Other important factor to be considered is that my uncle is due to travel US later this year and I can get the new iPhone at the most affordable price and can get it at the earliest. Now I am in dilemma with both positives and negatives, whether to opt for new iPhone Xs or still can run the juice with 4-year-old iPhone. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
