Not reading much right now. My BFF talked me into trying my hand at writing a book. I have the first chapter done and will start the second today.

Re-reading Bowl of Heaven by Gregory Benford and Larry Niven. Mainly because I just got the sequel, Ship Star, and wanted to remember the story line. My one knock about this book is that the aliens involved are basically a larger version of Big Bird?

Ok then, just finished The Rhesus Chart, by Charles Stross! If you follow his Laundry Files series (and if not, why not, it's great fun) this is the latest. Once again, our hero Bob is up to his you know what in ectoplasmic death and destruction, in the only bumbling way he know how...

Now on to some Alistair Reynolds (one of my faves). On the Steel Breeze is a (sorta) follow up to Blue Remembered Earth. This story, however, is a couple of centuries later. I had to go back to Amazon to read a blurb about BRE, which then makes OTSB a bit more in depth. That said, if you just read OTSB as a stand alone, you will hardly be disappointed.

So yeah... Star Rigger dries by Jeffrey Carver... the first book is ok, but thin on plot really. Hoping the next one picks up the pace or I might not be able to finish the series?

Well, I finished the Chaos Chronicels, by Jeffery Carver, and do recommend it. He's working on the 5th book in the series, but it does take him (by his own admission) a long time to complete. So, now I will devour his Star Rigger series...

Book 4 of the Chaos Chronicles. Which just so happens to be the same universe as the Star Rigger series by the same author, so guess what I'm reading next? I also got my dear WunderWife to read the series, she's a book behind me...

Woosh! I would highly recommend that book to anyone! It is not so much a memoir of "All About ME as an Astronaut" but more about how he overcame a lot of difficulties, kept his marriage and family intact, and along the way became a Commander of the ISS!

Right now, I'm back to SciFi, reading Neptune Crossing. Think hard SciFi with aliens and Chaos Theory and saving Earth...

Alrighty then, been on a tear of late. Am reading some astro memoirs now, I finished Forever Young by John Young. He's a rather enigmatic man, with 6 missions under his belt, and a 40 year career at NASA. I found his recollections to be a bit long on tech details and short on personal stories. Not that it wasn't good, but it's what one would expect from John Young.

Now I'm reading Falling to Erth, by Al Worden, a completely different tone in this book! Very straight forward, and openly honest. He does a great job in relating both his achievements, and also the failures, of his character. I highly recommend this one!!

The Belgariad series again, by David Eddings. I was trying to hold out on a re-read until it hit the electronic readers, but for some reason, his early series are not available. There must be some lawyers involved....

I finally got through the Nikki Heat book inspired by the show Castle. It was a hard read for me as I don't really like that genre. Love the show, book-not so much.

The Illuminatus Trilogy! by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, I ma on the 2nd book of the trilogy, and note that I have absolutely no idea why it's split up that way? This is ostensibly a murder mystery, fantasy, historical, religio-political satire written by someone who enjoyed a good hit of LSD while typing? Happily, the characters are amusing enough, and the 6 different subplots in search of a main theme are interesting enough that I am still reading it. But it is not for the feint of heart...

"Mr. White's Confession"--had to dabble in detective fiction for a bit, it seems (hee hee).

as far as sci-fi detective fiction goes, i'll recommend a fave: "The Automatic Detective" by A. Lee Martinez. Its interesting and I love the world he creates with great characters.

Two Sci Fi books:

1. Cyberstorm by Mathew Mather

2. The Atlantis Gene by A.G. Riddle

Both made me paranoid about our human race problems! But both gave me tons to think about. And my spark blogs have been about Harnessing Our Own Positive Energy. reading books like these will probably not help me do that. Except for the endings......

The Northern Star: The Beginning isn't as good as I hoped it would be. It's kind of all over the place as far telling a cohesive story. At least it was free! emoticon

sounds cool--i'm gonna start cracking at my sci-fi in between research stuff pretty soon (and I've got some books I got at Cons a few years ago and haven't read yet--don't make me turn in my geek card yet, been busy [pathetic whimpering])

Til then:
Fiction: still need to finish "Casino Royale"
Nonfiction: "Houston Blue: the story of the Houston Police Department"

"This is a revolution, dammit--we're going to have to offend SOMEBODY!"--William Daniels as John Adams, "1776".

"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"--Adm. David G. Farragut.

The Northern Star: The Beginning by Mike Gullickson

"2058. As the struggle for dwindling resources plunges the world into chaos, and "Mindlink" technology opens cyberspace to the masses, injured soldier John Raimey is transformed into a powerful bionic warrior (known as a Tank Major) to retrieve the King Sleeper: a computer hacker so devastating on-line, he can decimate government infrastructure, subliminally persuade the masses, and even kill."

The Book of Enoch. I know it is not sci-fi but it has been on my to read list for a while. On a side note, I just found and purchased a copy of Earth Abides by George R. Stewart yesterday at a used book store. I've been looking for this book for a while and couldn't believe I found it.

Addendum.......Rating: 3.5 stars It is a very complicated book with at least 5 sub plots. In the end all the plots tie in together. But keeping track of the various strings is tough. The book does not 'flow' well. And items from his other books are embedded a bit too much.


I have to go look. Author's name starts with a T and is a long name. My memory is so bad! I am pushing myself to think about this and remember! Darn. A woman gets abused under a pier in the beginning of the book. But really the whole book is about terrorism. Ah... Tannenbalm (maybe misspelled!). Title???? gotta go check--will get back to you on that. Chris

Ah--- here is th efull title and author!
