Vernor Vinge: A Fire Upon The Deep (Paperback, 1993, Tor Science Fiction) 4 stars

Thousands of years in the future, humanity is no longer alone in a universe where …

Great story with a lot of extremely creative concepts. The realms of space are super fascinating and well thought out. Less space stuff and more individual world building, even though it seems like a big space opera at first. Kind of leaves you wanting way more, so I will probably read his other books.

Sue Burke, Sue Burke: Semiosis (EBook, 2018, Tom Doherty Associates) 4 stars

Human survival hinges on an bizarre alliance in Semiosis, a character driven science fiction novel …

Great read! Realistic and yet positive and hopeful.

Loosely a Cli-Fi but with out any unbearable dread. Not usually a fan of that specific scifi subgenre (not because it isnt good but because you know..the whole world.), and kind of exhausted with generation ship or space colonies, but damn the action kept coming and the world building was amazing. Loved all of the characters and felt attached to their hardship, struggle and success. Would highly recommend. Also good for plant lovers 🌿🌿🌿🌿!

Thomas F. Monteleone: The time-swept city (1977, Popular Library) 4 stars

Review of 'The time-swept city' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Starting this book I realized the author doesn't know Lake Michigan is a lake, not an ocean. I swear the editor added one parenthetical saying (he knew it was a lake he just just liked to call it an ocean).

Strap in for a wild ride.

Basically I think I am now a Luddite and need antidepressants.

It was good but not fun. 4⭐
