4170 Yeah, as the book description says, the novel is more about over-population than cannibalism. Haven't read this one myself, but always enjoyed the Stainless Steel Rat books. My go-to read if I ever need to plan a heist.

haven't read ADF since I was a teenager. No idea about this one. But: "Rabbitlike aliens from outer space colonize Earth during humankind’s Second World War." Night of the Lepus!

4170 Downloading this, thought I'd remind folks that some classic SF is available at Gutenberg.

4170 1st person is fabulous! If done well. So far so good. Love the opportunity to see through another's eyes. I already know how I see the world.

4170 Definitely too much podcast out there. No time for audiobooks. Maybe if I had a longer commute, but I'm not moving for THAT! I listen to a few religiously, but some others just generate a backlog and I delete them unheard. Really enjoy S&L, Hijinks Ensue, Best of the Left, and Skeptics Guide to the Universe...
But I can totally stop any time I want to.

4170 Enjoyed the podcast. I read this series when in my teens, and I still remember realizing those towers were space ships. :) One thing that got me this podcast was the whole one quarter one eighth, aaaaarg thing. I blurted out "Math is Hard!" Good thing I was alone in the car.

4170 Hullo,
I am Tom, and I've been listening in for most of the last year. I like sword and laser books, and I've recently been getting back into reading some (grad school took a bite out of all of my non-grad school activities).
I've been loving Terry Pratchett and George R.R. Martin the last year, but also China Mieville, Ian McDonald and Kim Stanley Robinson.

4170 Here's a nice reddit thread:
4170 Let's see. Still reading The Wretched of the Earth, Iron Kingdom: The Rise and Downfall of Prussia, 1600-1947, and 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown. Also, The Time Traders (a nostalgia trip: I spent a lot of my time as a teen reading Andre Norton novels), Tau Zero, and MetaGame.
4170 Jim wrote: "Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War - I haven't read a good Vietnam fiction book sine 13th Valley, The. This looks to be a worthy successor. I'm almost ready to g..."

Nice! I listened to this (got it from this summer and enjoyed it a lot.
