Revenge of the Librarian: Taking over the world
It wasn’t high on my list of things to do, this taking over the world, until a few years ago. Then I realized the power that librarians now have: they hold the answer to every possible question in the palm of their hands (once they find a good source, that is). With this simple understanding of how life works, I set out to become a master of information. I would one day understand it all. I would one day know everything (or, at the very least, how to go about finding it).
42? Pfft. No longer is the answer to life, the universe, and everything able to be whittled down to just two little numbers. It’s a veritable compendium of information!
“Very senior librarians, however, once they had proved themselves worthy by performing some valiant act of librarianship, are accepted into a secret order and are taught the raw arts of survival beyond the Shelves We Know.”
