I liked this book very much, and in part for the very reason that Gilmartin disliked it -- it straddles the line between SF and fantasy. The resulting maze of surrealism, dreamscape and fantasy, all wrapped up in layers of political intrigue and conspiracies, was right up my alley.

I loved the way it became more and more bizarre as the plot unfolded (the first big sign being when the bird flies off the page), and also the way the author involved the novel itself in the plot of the novel (!) -- that was quite brilliant, the novel affecting itself.

I understand that a sequel is in the works. Good. I'll be reading it, most definitely.

Thank you Henry, for a most enjoyable and intelligent novel.

Aerophilia

by Tobias Buckell

I don't agree with Jon's assessment of the characters at all. I thought they were well done. The writing is excellent overall. This absolutely, though, felt like the first chapter of what was shaping up to be a good novel. I didn't realise it was a short story, and was surprised and disappointed when I came to the end. What, no more? I want the rest of the story.
