Just finished When Heaven Fell by William Barton, one of my favorite books of all time. This is the second time I read it, the first reread since it was first released in 1995. This book is dystopia fiction to the nth degree, Earth is destroyed and under the thumb of the "master race" who recruits a tiny fraction of humanity's survivors to serve in the Spahi mercenary corps. Excellent and complicated.

Currently reading Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut, not a sci fi book, but a great read.

Just finished Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut, and Women by Charles Bukowski.

Both interesting.

The Scar, by China Miéville.

I loved The Scar! Probably my favorite of the novels Mieville wrote in that world.

It has steam-punk elements and nasty, nasty science fiction. I hope they NEVER attempt to make a movie out of it. CM's prose is too dense. My spouse listened to his work as a book-on-tape (she struggled to keep it organized).

Adjustment Day - Chuck Pahlaniuk. One of the best dystopian novels I've ever read.
