There are many problems with time-looping stories, or at least problems with setting them up when the author thinks the time-looping is a genre indicator, not a story-telling device. In the first story iteration, before the first loop starts, the con ...more

Semiosis by Sue Burke

Solid novel, set over generations, with each new chapter/section feeling like a different genre, or at least a different approach to story-telling and character and theme. That's satisfying in some ways but does seem to leave a few too many questions ...more

Probably not. Nobody has yet convinced me it's worth the time.

Yes, but only when I forget all the stuff I didn't like about the last few books.

message 10: by Jamie

Jamie All looks a bit Blah to me.
I've read "The Moat In Gods Eye" and "Enders Game".
I have "Gateway" on my list.
The rest of it seems to be Trafalgar in Space, not interested.

I see what you mean about the rehashing of old, almost classical ideas in a Sci-Fi setting.

I commented on it recently in reaction to a post on my "House of Suns" review

I just found a list of Naval Science Fiction http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/31...

I guess it really is a thing. Not that I'd put Ender's Game in there, as that novel at least attempts to come up with a new analogy for space battles rather than doing everything possible to construct a world onto which the tactics and command of 19th century naval battles can be mapped exactly.

Otto Hello Luke. Podcast-listener here. I really enjoy SFBRP. Your passionate British accent and your love for sci-fi shines though. You have inspired me to read more science fiction because till recently I was only into fantasy.

Thank you for becoming goodreads friend.


Austin Hey Luke! See you're reading The Hobbit. So sorry. Read that for a Sci-fi/Fantasy lit class in college and could barely finish it.

Have you given Metro 2033 a look? It's a russian post-apocalyptic science fiction number. Real bleak. You'd love it.

Keep up the good work!

P.Q. Glisson Hello Luke!
Thanks for wanting to become my friend. :)
Please take a moment to check out my debut novel, Her Sanctuary which is doing quite well and is available at many bookstore websites including amazon.com where you can "look inside" for a sneak preview.
Please feel free to peruse my profile and see what I'm currently working on.
I look forward to exchanging book recs with you and chatting about, oh, I don't know, whatever comes to mind. :)
Thanks again! Her Sanctuary by P.Q. Glisson


message 2: by Jay

Jay Daze Hey Luke, I'm a long time listener (or at least I've listened to all the SFBRP pod-casts) and finally have gotten around to 'friending' you. Thanks so much for your reviews. They're always thoughtful, passionate and entertaining. Completely agree with your review of Sawyer, except for the last part. I have to live in the same country as the guy, that should be punishment enough -- don't make me read him!


Tamahome Starshipsofa twittered a 45 min interview with Alastair Reynolds. Guess what, he likes Book of the New Sun, but Schismatic is a favorite (around 19 min in). http://bit.ly/9DoPeq
