Busy Reading

Angles of Attack

If you have any hankering for good old hard-shell science fiction, then if you haven't started on Marko's series, why the frell not?

Keep yerselves amused. I'm busy enjoying this one. Hell, yeah!

UPDATE: Finished it. Marko can write. Keeping a tale coherent through a thousand pages of print is no small feat. And he's not done, for he's writing #4, "Chains of Command".

I think that in all of that, I only noticed one little detail which had me scratching my head and going "huh?". Which is pretty damn amazing, considering that I've read some decent SF that couldn't get through a chapter without wondering "WTF".

Unhinge your wallets and buy the books. I'll give you my word-- if you don't like the books, then you'll have no trouble finding someone who will.

You may enjoy the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. I'm in the middle of the third, with a fourth already on my Kindle.

Pretty hard SF with good characters. The world of the series is so open-ended, he won't be tapped out for ideas for a dozen books at least.

I'm reading it, it's loaded on my phone for those waits at the doc office. Marko sure tells a good story. I'm about a 1/3 of the way through and I'm already looking forward to the fourth one.
