  1. I too, am enjoying Gnomon. It's loooong, though, so I'm gonna be a while...
  2. Murderous fairies are making their return in March. Thanks for asking
  3. The voice is very similar here to the voice in The Martian. But without such a compelling dilemma to work against, the jokes are just annoying. YMMV, of course.
  4. I stopped reading Artemis, mainly because of character annoyance. Moving on to Gnomon by Nick Harkaway. Looking forward to it!
  5. Naomi Alderman's The Power was excellent. Typical old-school SF, where you just take a crazy idea and run with it as far as you can. Up next, Andy Weir's Artemis.
  6. I'm reading The Power by Naomi Alderman.
  7. Finally!!!! Wow!
  8. I'm reading Philip Reeve's Railhead. Enjoying it so far. Only 12% in...
  9. I'm reading STAGS by M.A. Bennett.
  10. Thanks. I've been dreaming about that for years, believe me!
  11. I've only seen my own stories, but I've had a few clues that make some of the others sound awesome. Knaves over Queens should be a great addition to the series.
  12. I have started Will Hill's After the Fire. It's a story about the surviving members of a cult after their compound was stormed by the authorities. I like it so far.
  13. I'm reading The Quantum Astrologer's Handbook by Michael Brooks. Good so far, but not sure how best to describe it. A mix of quantum theory and the life of a genius from the Renaissance called Jerome Cardano.
  14. I'm reading The Devil in the Marshalsea by Antonia Hodgson. Set in a debtors' prison in London in the early 1700s. OK so far. A bit of a Gary Stu.
  15. It is a story in its own right, but is also the introduction to all the other tales. Classic frame, basically
