Heavy emphasis so far on Japanese authors ? Most stories are not engaging. In short stories you have to grab the readers attention right away or we move to the next story. This does not bode well for the rest of this collection

Well things have really unwound with the bold experiment to bend space and create a viable teleportation device. Does it really work ? Why after 190 successfull trials does the team insist on test after test ?

Jay Allan always starts his books with action and intrigue and just keeps on building from there. And he has done that with this book as we start off by extracting a planetary figure right under the noses of his security.

Jack Campbell continues in his world where the enigma's appear to be at it again. In addition somone is trying to kill the President so that just adds an added level of stress. Plus we have a modern day space pirate who is also after the President. Great story arc and tight writing make for an adventure on every page

Well we know who is linked to the President now. However the other linkages are causing emotional and psychological problems. Plus it appears proximity is not required for the mind links to work

A flowing tale with short periods of action. Someone has tried to blow up an airship at a major meeting and the wonderstone recovered from beneath the sea is starting to produce answers. A thick read as the author paints a picture of what everyone is thinking and elaborately describes their surroundings

Something has been found in space and is being brought back to Earth. It's suppose to be a secret but rumors are flying and someone is going to deal wit the frenzy being created. What exactly has been found ?

I'm just riding along the various story waves and knowing that eventually they will all crash together. Brin paints vivid pictures of what is happenning around his characters

A deeply disappointing book. I bought it based on a reviewe noting that the five guys report on the NSA was what the book was about. However it took 220 pages of repetitive background fluff to get to the point of the report. Then the next 10 pages are about the report and now more fluff. It was definately oversold in the review I read.

David Brin writes in textures rather than verses so his books are always a slow read. Too early to get into plot or characters

There is a lot of repetition in this book. The same people keep on popping up working for a new group with an acronym and we haven't even got to the current situation. Way too many pages in the past

A lot of information about the early thoughts surrounding the idea of cyber warfare. I'm hoping we get to the current century before too long as I don't want to spend too much time in the 70's and 80'. Been There - Done That - time to move on.

So far we have met Houdini, Hitler and Freud and haven't really got to the case at hand. Fun, but lets get on with finding the bad guy.
