Reading List Update 1

March 29, 2011

20. 1632, Eric Flint

21. The Blade Itself, Joe Abercrombie

22. Space Cadet, Robert Heinlein

23. The A.I. War: The Big Boost, Daniel Keys Moran

That last one is very important to me, although more important to Dan Moran, I expect. The previous books in the ‘Tales of the Continuing Time’ series, Emerald Eyes, The Long Run and The Last Dancer, are great.  Nominally cyberpunk, with time travel, aliens, conspiracies and a smart hero devoted to non-violence. Good stuff.

So the next book in the series came out, which in itself is awesome, but here’s the thing: the last book was published in 1993. There was a big blow-up with the publisher which, as far as I can tell, ended up with them dangling the finished book out of his reach, refusing to publish it, and DKM finally buying back the rights to his own book a few years back.

It’s been like slipping into an old pair of shoes. Well-worn, but fits you perfect. If you’re into sci-fi, and want a fun series to sink your teeth into check these books out. The first three are available free as PDFs, and the most recent is available (as well as the previous books in epub and other ebook formats) at the enigmatically named FS&.
