Read in June, 2008

For genre fiction, this is about the top. Bester is completely in control of his world of peepers, its rules and characters in a way most sci-fi authors can only dream about. The account of the psychic cocktail party (and the creative typography) is genius, worth a million exploding spaceships. Some reviewers found this dated, but I loved it, much more than supposedly "up to date" stuff by people who can't write. Writing is the ultimate technology.
