Review: Excession

Excession by Iain M. Banks My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book tickled my fancy. What a strange universe.

Review: Echopraxia

Echopraxia by Peter Watts My rating: 4 of 5 stars Of roaches, bicameral, zombies, vampires–oh my. I think this book could have started being interleaved between the pages of the prior book and it would have had a nice transitional set/segue. It stands alone but it also marries. Where Blindsight captivated us in closed spaces […]
