Clay (snoweel) | 14 comments I read a sample of this book and intended to buy it, now I can't identify it. It was a science fiction book from the past couple of years, probably reviewed on tor.com. It started out on a fishing boat, I think there was some biology research going on. One of the crewmen was an alien. I want to say they were on a giant planet or perhaps the moon of a gas giant.

Clay (snoweel) | 14 comments Thanks for the reply. That's a good fit but it's not the one I was looking for. It looks quite interesting, though.

Maybe I should post queries about plots/settings I would like to read and see if they exist!

Actually you can do that, in the "Requests for books in general" section. E.g. someone might be looking for gay coming of age novels, thrillers taking place during WWII, etc.

Figured it out--Cosmonaut Keep, by Ken MacLeod.
