    Maybe EV 14 will be waiting for me when I get home!!! I wonder how that Egan book is? I have really enjoyed his past stuff.

    I’m curious about the Lisle, as well as what you’ll make of Abercrombie’s third volume.

    I’m really glad you posted this, because I just got my economic stimulus check, and I planned on using it to subscribe to Electric Velocipede…!

    And I had forgotten until just now.

    So, Shadow of the Scorpion is real…I was beginning to wonder.

    I’m about halfway into Egan’s Incandescence. So far, so good. It mixes a story of citizens of a galactic civilization where everyone chooses their own reality to inhabit, the kind of post-human world many of his books have pointed to, with a world where the inhabitants are grasping to understand their own surroundings. Those latter sections have an almost old-fashioned hard SF feel to them, lots of talk of math and science and deductions about the nature of reality, the kind of SF where the setting is at least as big a character as any of the people.
