Hokay, been on a rampage of reading!! Just finished The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu, and translated from Chinese to English by Ken Liu. Cixim Liu has been called the Arthur C. Clarke of China, and with good reason.
This book is the first of three to hit the American market, and I wish th other two were already here!
Seems that Science is stumbling around, and "Miracles" are happening on Earth. So who and why is behind these events? And how do go forward once we know those answers? All great questions, and the author weaves a very articulate book of answers!

Just finished Glory Season by David Brin. a pretty good read! A break away starts colony from Earth, where women run just about everything, and men and non-clones are second class citizens!
So, our heroine is a "var" or non-clone, and must struggle along to get to the end of the book. also good stuff about sex, and the relationship of the sexes.

Hurray, I gots me some books to read again!! I just finished "In The Mouth Of The Whale", by Paul McAuley. This book is in the Quiet War, and Gardens of the Sun universe. And I do recommend reading them all! But if you just pick one of them up, they read quite nicely as stand alone novels.

I think I want to pick up Pynchon's Inherent Vice, since hubby and I just watched the movie and enjoyed it a lot. I've never tackled Pynchon before, and it seems time.

In the realm of sf related items, I'm reading the Mackenzie biography of H.G. Wells. Not surprisingly, as with many authors, turns out he was quite the unpleasant person in real life!

Cool. I never did get into the Star Trek novels? Nor the Star Wars novels either? But I know there is a vast universe of them.

I recently squeezed Ben Bova's Farside. It's about an observatory on the backside for the Moon, and our heroes are trying to assemble some mirrors to get info about a planet orbiting Sirius. It's a quick read, and really rather flat? You can predict just about everything before it happens.

Now on to the follow up novel Freedom, by Daniel Suarez...

Okay... your Captain officially has the blerg... went to Med Bay yesterday, and got some Antibiotics, and an inhaler, and some other drugs... Seems there GrandLittles were pawns in an interstellar plot to seize control of this ship as part of a nefarious plan bent on galactic domination. Happily, WunderWife and I were able to extract the GrandLittles, and thus foil the dastardly scheme. Unfortunately the Fugly Evuls left a dreaded disease vector in the GrandLittles, but our more moderne Science and Mrd Bays came to the rescue!

Now... where was I?

Okay, American Gods as great!! Now reading an anthology of stories edited by David Brin: Extreme Planets. The idea is that the planet itself is almost a character in the storyline. So far it's okay, but nothing really fascinating?

I finished reading Mars by Ben Bova. I had read THX1138 (and saw the movie) a while ago so I grabbed it up at a book sale at the library. 50 cents. Can't beat that.

And now into a new series, by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. The Long Earth mostly happens in Madison WI, 2015 (yay!). Seems that some unknown put a schematic on the interwebby for an easy to make little box that moves from one world to the next. Think parallel universes (or at least Earths). Very droll, but also very well done.

The play was fantastic!

I wasn't able to take pictures, but it was a modern take on "The Call of Cthulhu", and it had enough humor sprinkled in to make it enjoyable. The special effects were amazing too! They did a fantastic job of portraying the psychological torment of the main character.


I am back to reading "Dust" now. I haven't gotten far, but it's quite a bit shorter than "Wool" and "Shift", so I expect it won't be long to complete.

I just finally finished all the Priscilla Hutchins novels by Jack McDevitt. Quick, easy reads, and really could almost be YA I think?

Not onto Ben Bova's Mars Inc. The Billionaires Club. An intrepid billionaire corrals other billionaires to settle Mars. Should be an interesting read, and will be fun to see how the author mixes money and space exploration?

That is so uber! You'll hafta snap some pics, and post some stories!!

Now that I've finished the Priscilla Hutchins series... he just brought out a prequel. So yeah, gotta read that one too... called Starhawk, by Jack McDevitt... They all are a quick, easy read, and the characters not really all that multi dimensional, nor textured. But still a nice read.

Ooops... change of plans. The newest book by Mr. Hamilton is merely book 1... which means I will wait for Book 2 to come out and then read them back to back. Otherwise I will have completely forgotten what Book 1 covered?
So now I will tear into Jack McDevitt's Priscilla Hutchins series. I read the first one, then ordered the rest, which are now atop my TBR pile.

Hey, did you like Shift? Don't think I've read that one yet.

Reading the Wool Trilogy by Hugh Howey. I'm currently reading Shift. It's great! You can read for free if you have a Kindle.
I'm also reading the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. I finished Second Foundation a couple of months ago. I'll start up again after finishing Wool.

I have an extensive reading list :)

Now reading Peter Watts book Blindsight... a very interesting read. Our hero is most definitely on the Autism scale, but uses that as an advantage in this thriller!

I am now reading Carrying the Fire by Michael Collins. You know, the first human being to orbit the Moon by himself. Oh yeah, a couple of crew were waddling around on the Moon posing for pictures when he did it! So far, a very engaging read!He simply calls it like he saw it, and shows why he really was (and still is in his 80's) the Right Stuff...

I'm reading some history right now "The Cosmonaut Who Couldn't Stop Smiling" by Andrew L. Jenks. The author is a history prof, and the book reads like a textbook, so kinda dry. But the author idea a good job at trying separate the propagandized Yuri Gagarin from the real Yuri Gagarin.

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?

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.

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...

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...

The Scary Stories Treasury, by Alvin Schwartz (the GOOD version with the original creepy-friggin' drawings by Stephen Gammel (dunno why the 30th anniversary version has a different illustrator, its just dumb--the creepy drawings make the stories creepier!)

"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
