Freedom Incorporated

by Peter Tylee

Not bad at all - reads like a movie. No work of art, but a nice page-turner with action in a sci-fi futuristic setting where the assassin for the corporate state changes sides to defend a naive activist.

Mr. Trunnell

by T. Jenkins Hains

The old language used in this story sets a facinating scene of the lawless high seas, where our central character is employed on a ship under the care of the colourful Trunnell. Highly recommended.

The Variant Effect

by G. Wells Taylor

I'm really enjoying this book - great characters, and an excellent way to introduce the zombie theme.

Borland is an unusual hero-type - his body is falling apart, and he's definately a bit insane, and there is a good opposite balance with Hyde (the skinned "partner").

Definately can be reccommended. A well written and flowing story.

Ventus

by Karl Schroeder

Really good story that starts in a late medieval rural setting with fortresses, forests and folkelore - and ends up in a planet-scale nano AI battle. It's a little longer than it needed to be, and definately needs more editing, especially on the last half. I can reccommend it - reminded me a bit of Peter Hamilton's story in "Void Trilogy" with Edeard realising his powers slowly over time, at the same time as the nature of his world are revealed at the same pace.
