    Consumed the audiobook a month ago – great stuff. Thanks for previously recommending this and Bitter Seeds, Cory.

  2. Yes, I thought I was going batty – wasn’t this same recommendation here a month or two back?

      That might have been about the audiobook. For some reason the audiobook was available months before the print edition – I think this post is about the now available print version, and how excellent it is.

      Can’t stress this enough: This is a sequel. Read Bitter Seeds first.

    Thanks for this. Sounds intriguing. I’ve now got Bitter Seeds on my short list. Right now I’m in the middle of Alistair Reynolds’ Blue Remembered Earth, which I’m enjoying immensely, and next up on the roster is Kim Stanley Robinson’s 2312, but Bitter Seeds may very well be next after that.

  4. Thanks for the Bitters Seeds reco. It was a great book and I look forward to this one.

    I need some recommendations for more good science fiction audiobooks, available from Audible (or Librivox). I just finished Ender’s Game and I’ve listened to just about every John Scalzi book. Any suggestions?

    • I have a feeling you’re about to get flooded with more rec’s than you can handle. No idea about availability from your two vendors, but:

      - Hyperion by Dan Simmons 
      - Aristoi by Walter Jon Williams (Oldish, but full of absolutely fucking awesome ideas. Probably should be read rather than listened to because of how the formatting contributes to the story, but still worthwhile.)
      - Probably any of the Culture books by Iain M. Banks. I’m not a huge fan of his, but everybody else is so probably worth a look. 
      - The Takeshi Kovacs books by Richard K. Morgan. 
      - Embassytown by Miéville

      Also, like any good nerd I loved Ender’s Game, but eff Orson Scott Card. That guy’s a dick.

  6. I’ve been waiting for this forever, so thanks for the heads up. 

    There really needs to be a way to get notifications of book releases besides pre-ordering them from Amazon.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve been looking for something new to read.
