Dr. Rajaniemi, whose background includes studies in theoretical physics and string theory, writes a kind of hard-science SF that I rarely see, where the pure mind-bending weirdness of the possible science and technology is not a problem posed that th ...more

As one blurb says, Portis could be Cormac McCarthy if he wanted to, but he would rather be funny; and this book is laugh out loud funny if you pay attention to the derangement of the narrator, who calmly and (to his mind) rationally shows to you the ...more

As strange a narrative as I can recall encountering, full of twists, sex, and psychedelia that perfectly echoes college life in the 70s while bending the reader's perceptions in clever ways. I picked it up after reading an essay on it by Jo Walton in ...more

China will never be the same now that Darger and Surplus have campaigned across it.

Highly recommended to the mad, bad and dangerous to know.

What would you get if you put Orwell’s Animal Farm, Adams’s Watership Down, and Kipling’s The Jungle Book into a blender with David Brin’s “Uplift” series? You might well get Lawrence Schoen’s novel Barsk.

A lot of reviews are tossing out the term "noir," which is nice but an irrelevancy in attempting to describe The Water Knife. This is not noir, this is pure edge-of-the-seat thriller with depth, style, and great voice. This is "Cormac McCarthy meets ...more
