    I thoroughly enjoyed Interference. It was a fascinating read that I couldn't wait to finish. Sort of a murder mystery/scientific exploration/new world novel, this is the sequel to Semiosis--but you don't *need* to have read the first book to understand this one. It provides backstory for Stevland and the colonists but if you haven't read Semiosis (or did so back when it first came out and only sort of remember the details) you'll do just fine with Interference.

    Reading Sue Burke's sequel to Semiosis, which was a terrific debut. The sequel may be even better. I'm a third way in and it's got me hooked.

    So far, and I'll update this in a bit, it's following a more linear story form, where the first novel was a collection of short stories or novellas spanning subsequent generations colonizing the planet Pax, which has sentient plants and the decendents of other alien colonists, the Glassmakers.

    Now the colonists, the central plant intelligence that helps gu
