Awake in the Night Land

April 14th, 2014 by Adam G.

The Last Redoubt

John C. Wright’s book Awake in the Night Land is out.

I can’t really express how good it is. This is a book that I will be rereading and thinking about for the rest of my life. It is a book that made my eyes shine when my wife walked into the room. It is touched with holiness. (more…)

The Last of All Suns

March 14th, 2014 by Adam G.

John C. Wright has a new book of novellas coming out. I’ve read one of them. It is really good. Among the best science fiction stories I’ve ever read. It’s only flaw is that its a little talky. It circumscribes fantasy, SF, and TF.

Sanderson’s Words of Radiance is now out. It’s the sequel to the justly-praised Way of Kings. I bought Words, but I feel the need to get back up to speed on Way of Kings first. Anyone have any suggestions? Preferably something short of just rereading Way.

Daily Science Fiction

September 21st, 2011 by Adam G.

Don’t miss today’s story from Daily SF, “Ten Speeds at the End of the World,” by Guinevere Robin Rowell. it combines “what if this were the world’s last night?” with a touch of proper sentiment. It’s not up yet on the site so look for it in the next couple of days.

The Resurrection of Spock, the Looting Lepers of Mars

September 02nd, 2011 by Adam G.

John C. Wright hilariously essays to write about the supposed opposition between religion and science, and the nature of science fiction. His definition of science fiction is close to the true one, which is that science fiction is the imaginative fiction of the myths of modernity. (more…)
