TagShadow: A Random Glimpse
Today was a crash course in php, mySQL and Amazon Web Services. The true fruits of today’s labor are still a ways off, but since I have some data, I figured I’d use it for something. That data (still collecting) is a list of the Science Fiction and Fantasy book on amazon. I built a very simple page that grabs a random chunk of 40 books and outputs the covers. Of course these all link to amazon.
I’ve actually had some fun refreshing this page. The image above is a screen capture that featured a bunch of Zelazny books. I’d not realized that he’d collaborated with both Philip K. Dick and Alfred Bester. Explore some random books and let me know what gems you find.
