  1. I have started Rule of Capture by Christopher Brown, about a lawyer in a future American dystopia. Not so sure about this one, but we'll see.
  2. This line is a definite improvement: "As of January 1, 2021, we are paying royalties on any return made more than 7 days after purchase."
  3. With Kindle Unlimited, you get to choose if your books participate or not. Their current approach, as far as I am concerned is no better than theft.
  4. I'm reading the third in Peter F. Hamilton's Salvation series -- The Saints of Salvation. I probably should have waited a few months -- it's a bit much to read three of them in a row, I think.
  5. I'm enjoying the first book a lot, but I agree with your point about the characters. The structure (so far) is remarkably similar to that of Dan Simmons' "Hyperion" with individual characters each telling a tale as they slowly travel towards a mystery. Unlike the Simmons book, all these stories, while good individually, have the same feel for me. Happy to keep reading, though!
  6. It's been years since I tried a Peter F. Hamilton novel, but the good word on here lately has convinced me to give Salvation a go. Let's see...
  7. Reading The Last Greek by Christian Cameron. You pretty much know what you're getting with these...
  8. S.J. Morden's Gallowglass was enjoyable. I'd recommend it to lovers of The Martian and to anybody who likes stories of the type where a clever young person uses science and logic to survive. If you're interested, S.J. Morden has two other good books in that subgenre: One Way and its sequel, No Way.
  9. About to start Gallowglass by Simon Morden.
  10. I'm about to start Christian Cameron's The New Achilles.
  11. I have not read these since before the Age of Men. I won't be getting a chance this year either
  12. I've been really busy, so it's taken me a lot longer than I expected to finish David Mitchell's Utopia Avenue. I liked it a lot, the first half more than the second, but even so. Up next, Good Samaritans by Will Carver.
  13. I am excited to say that for the first time, the books of The Bone World Trilogy are all available as matching ebooks! Get them from the links below. Get them before they run out, although... well, running out is not really possible. But getting them is definitely a thing of joy. At least for me. Warning: violence and trauma. Too much for the more gentle among you. An off-stage sexual assault is also hinted at. The links give a choice of buying options -- so far that’s just smashwords for epub readers, or amazon for kindle users. Thanks to all of you and to your families and friends and pets. https://geni.us/theinferior https://geni.us/thedeserter https://geni.us/thevolunteer Is that blatant enough for this thread?
  14. Agreed! Personally, I'd be happy enough with a percentage of the book -- say, 30%. It gives somebody a fair shot of saying whether they like the book or not.
