Baby X

🌟🌟🌟🌟 Imaginative and intricate, this sci-fi thriller blends a near-future world of inventive hi-tech gadgets and norms (fantastical, but perhaps only barely), with a thoughtful commentary on engineered procreation - in this case labeled “precision reproduction” - and its affect on the fragile identities of the generations of these humans…

The Lost Cause

🌟🌟🌟💫 An earnest, albeit depressing, look at climate change, thirty years down the road, and the political upheaval at play in a world no more divided than what what we have in place today. As tensions rise to the critical point, measures put in place by a ‘Green New Deal’-…

The Left Hand of Darkness

🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 A science fiction classic, and one that that so deserved a re-read. This story follows the journey of a somewhat naive envoy, Genly Ai, sent to broker an interplanetary alliance between a remote planet, Gethen, and Ekumen, a vital trade and intelligence collective of eighty-three planets. The planet Gethen,…

All Systems Red

🌟🌟🌟🌟1/2 Picture this. A sci-fi series, beginning with this novella, based upon an achingly vulnerable half-human bot, or is that half-bot human? Hard to say as this fascinating character has feelings (which he hates and tries to ignore), can and will hack his own programming, and may or may not…

Reinception

🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 A beautifully crafted sci-fi look at a society writhing with power, and the technology to enslave, alter or coerce the behaviors, and even more chillingly, the identities of its own citizens. In a world where rewriting history is as easy as a surgical procedure, people’s views have become, largely,…

Klara and the Sun

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+ I finished this book and the-lump-in-the-throat test cannot be denied. This book is a first class heart breaker, albeit one with a strangely hopeful tone balancing out what at first glance seems affectingly tragic. A science or speculative fiction instant classic, “Kara and the Sun” is about AI and…

Reality Check

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “We are not alone, and they are dangerous.” What do you get when you take the best of “Top Gun”, and blend it with an updated and cooler-techno “Star Wars” ? This action packed sci-fi epic - which has elements of just such a magical mixture - is sure…

The Sequence

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The Sequence” by Lucien Telford is absolutely brilliant in parts, (many parts), so much so that it’s hard to believe this is the work of first time author. The story line is multi-layered, fiendishly ingenious, and peppered with such cool tech gear, holograms, vehicles, implants and gadgets that I…

Around the Dark Dial

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I remember reading Ray Bradbury as a kid and being totally captivated. That rush of immediate childish wonder - of starry nights and worlds out there to be discovered - and lurking in the sidelines, the terror of the unknown, the darkly magical, and just what could be out…

Crazy Foolish Robots

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 A nifty and chuckle-inducing sci-fi fable, sure to delight fans of Douglas Adams, and the Martha Wells “Murderbot” series. Nineteen year old Ruby is smart, ambitious, and has a thing about robots. That is to say, she hates them, actually, despises them with every cell of her being,…
