Stand on Zanzibar, by John Brunner

The Hugo winner from the year of my birth.

The Killing Moon, by N. K. Jemisin

The Quantum Thief, by Hannu Rajaniemi

This one wins coolest title of the year. I'm still not sure I completely understood everything that went on in here. Probably a good sign.

A Fire Upon the Deep, by Vernor Vinge

I picked this up to re-read, because Children of the Sky came out recently, and I figured I'd refresh myself on the series, given how much I liked the book the first time around. I quite enjoyed this book. Except: IT'S NOT AT ALL THE VERNOR VINGE BOOK I THOUGHT BLEW MY MIND A DECADE AGO. I've never read this before. So now I'm wondering if it was Deepness in the Sky. Guess I'll find out soon ;-)

The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle

Heroes Die, by Matthew Woodring Stover

I can't make any kind of fair comment on this story, because I'm pretty certain that unless I misunderstood something fundamental about the structure of this book, my Kobo e-book edition was missing multiple key scenes between Days 4 & 5, and Days 6 & 7.

Has anybody else experienced weirdness with the e-book edition? I tried it on two different devices so it's not just a corrupt download. I'm so puzzled I'm considering looking up the print edition to compare.
