“Founding Brothers”

I find history fascinating for many of the reasons I love science fiction: it takes me out of the limited horizons of this world. Ellis’ portrayal of men at the start of a country is a quick and dramatic read.


“Collapse”

Beloved by environmentally aware bloggers everywhere, “Collapse” is all that: a thoughtful consideration of what leads societies to collapse and others to succeed.


“Nature Noir”

by Jordan Fisher Smith
At times heavy-handed, it’s still a lyrical portrait of the relationship of man to nature in a park existing in the shadow of a theoretical dam.


“The Atrocity Archives”

Really two novellas joined by a common character, a funny send up of beauracracy, with magic.


“Spin”

Much deserving Hugo-nominated novel centered around an intriguing cosmic mystery and featuring big concepts, a realistically depicted near future, believable, sympathetic characters, and practically spotless prose. Highly recommended.
