Immortal Life: A Soon To Be True Story

In attempting to scorn certain trends, the story goes too far into the incredulous making it ineffective at the very thing it was trying to do.

Artemis: A Novel

That the two coincide within one novel makes Artemis a novel that is doubly disappointing.

Artemis: A Novel

With “Artemis,” it’s clear that Weir put a lot of effort into his research and world-building, but their application is far from seamless.

Places in the Darkness

What this veteran crime writer really provides in Places in the Darkness is another corker of a murder mystery, his new setting – with which he’s clearly having a whale of a time – giving him the opportunity to wow us with an even twistier twist than usual.

The Eterna Solution

If you enjoy Gothic Romance and Gaslamp fantasy, I highly recommend The Eterna Files saga. I’m sad to see it come to an end, but I am very much looking forward to the next adventure.

Artemis: A Novel

There’s no question that, commercially speaking, this novel is going to be a hit. But as a work of fiction it’s a crescent rather than a whole moon.

Artemis: A Novel

If he wants his world to be worth exploring in that kind of depth, he's going to have to make his characters as rich and startling as the dangerous worlds they live in.

Artemis: A Novel

Artemis is fun - high stakes, lots of action, and the same super accessible hard sci fi as The Martian. I read it in one sitting, quite happily. At least until it was done and I realized I'd have to wait that much longer for another read from Weir. Ah, the plight of a book junkie!

Terminal Alliance

I can’t wait to see where else Jim Hines will take them. To infinity and beyond, I am guessing.

An Unkindness of Ghosts

It is an antidote to poison. It is inoculation against pervasive, enduring disease. Like a vaccine, it is briefly painful, leaves a lingering soreness, but armors you from the inside out.


Provenance lacks some of the depth that made that series so engrossing.

Publishers Weekly : Provenance (September 26, 2017)

It’s primarily an optimistic coming-of-age story, and it stumbles on some false promises along the way.


Provenance is a super great novel and a great example of optimist, fun Science Fiction.


Acadie is a great story, showing that there’s more to this author than his well-known series.

Sea of Rust
Kirkus Reviews : Sea of Rust (September 05, 2017)

Innovative worldbuilding, a tight plot, and cinematic action sequences make for an exciting ride through a blasted landscape full of dying robots.

Tomorrow's Kin

Tomorrow’s Kin is a great alien-first-contact novel that has a pleasing amount of serious science to tell a surprisingly human story. Readers of Analog and Asimov’s Magazine will recognise its style and its quality.

When the English Fall: A Novel

“When the English Fall” is, slyly, a parable for climate change and for the horrifying threats it poses to the global order.


I found Bannerless to be great fun, just the thing I needed to help me get through a slump!
