For the fans of Greg Egan:
At midnight I started reading Greg Egan's new book, "Teranesia", and
finished it at 5 AM. Quite good - with a neatly unfolding storyline, and a
very smart, cutting-edge science concept as the main premise (I won't spoil
your future reading fun by discussing it here). The ending is a little bit
of a letdown, as if the author was building up the suspense for a real
earthquake, something that had a distinctly extropian flavor to it, and
backed off on the last 3 pages. But still quite good.
BTW, what are the current sci-fi titles on your collective reading list? I
noticed many list-member have very good taste in science fiction. Of my own
readings I can also warmly recommend Iain Banks, with his "Excession".
