So, yeah, the blogging's been a little thin around here lately. Life sometimes gets in the way, but I'm back. For now, let's catch up on the reading log, shall we?
Ship Breaker, by Paolo Bacigalupi
Award-winning dystopian YA, set in a post-peak oil world. Thought-provoking, but with plenty of action to engage young readers.
The Forge of God, by Greg Bear
Hard SF first contact novel. Things don't go too well for the human race.
Anvil of Stars, by Greg Bear
Sequel to the above, where humans must navigate the murky waters of interstellar law and judgement.
Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25, by Richard Paul Evans
YA of the kids with superpowers variety. If you're having trouble finding something for your son or nephew to read, this might be it.
