I'm off for a short vacation to the lovely (cold) state of Maine, so Free Reads may be late again next week.  Please bear with me!

If you judge a book by influence, then this wonderful novel gets the highest marks here. Story ideas spun off it throughout, and I expect some will see print. At times I was enthralled by it, at times I argued with it but I was ever compelled to keep ...more

The first novel that everyone is talking about this year. Some brilliant conceptualization and daring characterization of the hive mind/ship/human Justice of Toren. A riveting balancing act but she didn't stick the ending. More to come in this world, ...more

The Cut by George Pelecanos

Pelacanos is always reliable. The protagonist is a bit of a killing machine -- verging on James Bond territory! Presents as more realistic than it is.

“The walls are everywhere. Limits. You're not smart enough, not rich enough. You get tired. You die. Some people like to pretend they've broken out. That they're running free. But there's no escape. You have to find a way to live within the walls. And then, they don't matter.”
James Patrick Kelly

“This your brain. This is your brain on Facebook. Any questions?”
James Patrick Kelly

“Still, I could not imagine how being poor could be worse than being rich and hating yourself. I had seen enough of what it was like to be dead. It was time to try living.”
James Patrick Kelly, Mr. Boy
