Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

For a laugh, try telling Siri the above.

For those of us who don't use fruit based technology, what does it do? Finish the Queen song. Or talk about the new communications director?

It finishes the Queen song with minor modifications appropriate to a silicon-based "life form"

Instead of "I'm just a poor boy..." she says "I'm just a personal digital assistant..." (that's from memory and may not be exact wording). Not a big deal, but it amused me.

After listening again, it is a little more amusing. After proclaiming herself to be a poor digital assistant and bemoaning that nobody loves her, she asks, "will you let me go?" And responds to herself, "No, no, no, no, we will not let you go.." and carries on with the complex lyrics of the song about never let her go.

Not side-splitting, but it amused me.

Weird! I tried it just now, and it works fine.
