BOOKS N' SUCH

I'm ever-closer to growing one of those bald-guy ponytails and asking my wife to introduce me at parties as "a novelist." One book of essays and three(ish) science fiction novels down. Next: A bloody epic about moonshining-whale-slavers and how I overthrew the whole lot, alone, with my bare hands and an ivory comb given to me by the ghost of William Howard Taft. Nah, not really.

"I’ve been looking for something this well done for a long time…If you’re looking to get lost in a great bit of fiction that will engage your mind and your heart you’ve found it. Settle in and listen for a few hours or more, times as they are."

"The thing that struck me most, though, was the world building...a world that was just different enough from our own in every sense to be unsettling but familiar."
