Silence, I’m reading

Ben Percy 

The Dark Net

I have enjoyed his work. Yet there’s been a growing disconnect for me with his last few books. Red Moon was amazing but The Deadlands was a touch affected. I want to like his work more than I do. This book has a fun, inventive concept but it feels similar to Skipp and Specter work like The Scream but more mannered. It was a fast, enjoyable book and I wish it well. 

Margaret Atwood

Oryx and Drake

After The Fall

Maddadam

When she writes science fiction, she channels the best things about it. How it uses the future to talk about the present. Her characters are wonderful, she drops phrases and observations of compelling and acute insight. She’s so confident and astute, it’s almost maddening.
