Review: Excession

Excession by Iain M. Banks My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book tickled my fancy. What a strange universe. War footed aliens, an AI mind conspiracy, a love story gone weird, entanglements aplenty, and oh–an event of such proportion that freaks out a multi-thousand year old Culture. Yea. That’ll do.

Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks My rating: 4 of 5 stars (3.5 really..) I finished this a few weeks ago and I had trouble thinking of the review. I was in a stressful place and this book has a lot of back and forth in timelines and the engine that moves it forward […]

Where Blindsight captivated us in closed spaces […]

Review: Blindsight

We have a not-so-far-in-the-future event that for a moment galvanizes humanity. A humanity on the brink of losing its humanity maybe for good reasons, maybe for selfish–but we’re changing and we can already see that beginning of change in today’s science.
