Dead Astronauts:A Novel by Jeff VanderMeer
*** More of The Company destruction in the weird world of Borne – traveling along with Moss, Chen and Grayson. Throw into the mix Charlie X, a big bear, a leviathan and finally a blue fox. Color me confused – I loved this novel and VanderMeer writes so well but still I’m not ashamed to admit that plenty in this flew way over my head.

Rogue Protocol by Martha Wells
*** Murderbot (+ various supporting human characters and Miki – a ‘pet’ robot) battle it out against the bad guys on a terraforming station. Very short, fun, but not adding much to the overall saga.

This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
**** Blue vs Red, Garden vs Tech, Letters and Love. Different, short, sweet.

The Stars Now Unclaimed by Drew Williams
**** Space Opera with the pacing of an action packed video game.

Fall, Or Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson
**** Another monster book (could have been broken into three three) covering the start of a post human society. Took a while to finish, but well worth the effort with elements of Tolkein, the Bible and hard Science Fiction.

Agency (The Peripheral #2) by William Gibson
