  • Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds

    Alastair Reynolds has been one of my favorite authors ever since I discovered him. In recent years, with his departure from the Revelation Space universe, his work hasn’t been as good. He was a master at hard science-fiction, creating intricate storylines that blew me aways.It was with high hopes that I anticipated his Poseidon’s Children…

    Hamilton and Reynolds, Beyond Science-Fiction Writing

    As I was lying in my bed last night, reading The Man in the High Castle, I started missing reading about the Void. Unlike Reynolds, who has completely abandoned his magnum opus, Revelation Space, Hamilton has spent time developing even further.

  • Terminal World By Alastair Reynolds

    I finally managed to get my hands on Alastair Reynolds’ last book, Terminal World. One of the reasons why I had waited for a while is that the story was very steampunk-ish, and I don’t think that Alastair Reynolds should write steampunk. He should write hard science-fiction. Actually, I don’t really like reading about steampunk.…

  • Absolution Gap By Alastair Reynolds: Things I Disliked

    I’m a fan of Alastair Reynolds and I’ve read all of his books, most of them at least two times or more. His Revelation Space series was really interesting. I’m in the midst of finishing up Absolution Gap for the 3rd time, and I’ve started to notice some things that I dislike.

  • Alastair Reynolds & Terminal World

    You can read the first chapter of Alastair Reynolds’ new novel Terminal World here. It’s not Revelation Space, but it’s still science-fiction. Reynolds is currently working on his new series of novels called 11k.

    The Andromeda-Milky Way collision is a predicted galaxy collision that is due to take place in approximately 3 billion years’ time between the two largest galaxies in the Local Group – the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. * Central to Alastair Reynolds’ science fiction books in the Revelation Space universe, the Andromeda-Milky Way collision…

  • The Prefect by Alastair Reynolds

    It took me a while to get this book, but I finally managed to buy and read it. The only trouble is that it took me about 4 hours to read this book. I guess I’ll just have to be happy to read Pushing Ice and House of Suns again later this week. The Prefect…

  • House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds

    I finally managed to buy the latest Alastair Reynolds book. I was foiled back in 2007 while I was trying to get The Prefect in Taiwan. At the time, the book had only been published in the UK and my retailed didn’t managed to get a copy. In hindsight, I don’t know why I just…

  • The Ghost Brigades

    Well, I’ve just finished The Ghost Brigades, the second novel from John Scalzi in the Old Man’s War universe. It was pretty entertaining as well. Book 3 is The Last Colony, which came out last year. Book 4 is coming out in August and it’s called Zoe’s Tale. While I await to purchase The Last…

  • The Dreaming Void

    I just finished The Dreaming Void by Peter F. Hamilton. I really liked it. I started it on Sunday and had a hundred pages left today. Luckily, The Temporal Void will be published in October 2008, so the wait isn’t that long to find out what will happen next. I wonder why The Prefect by…
