Science Fiction

increasingly, now-casting

I read a lot of science fiction. What of it?

My favourite categories are probably

  1. Strong on political economy, or
  2. Mind candy escapism with lots of explosions, or
  3. philosophically troubling

I’d like to say more about it but TBH I read this stuff to have a break from my main day job of writing, so it is unlikely that I will put many reviews here.

FWIW, I get many of my recommendations from Books to Read While the Algae Grow in Your Fur; the intersection of those books with those that are available as Audiobooks is a pretty good filter for me.
