Summer Sci-Fi So Far

Posted in sci fi at 7:11 pm by Mike Milinkovich

So as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’m working my way through a goodly chunk of Marc Andreessen’s top-ten new sci-fi authors list.

I realized after my last post that I wrote my initial list of five books in a pretty goofy order, as three out of the five were part of the same trilogy by John Scalzi: Old Man’s War, The Ghost Brigade and The Last Colony.

So let’s to the chase: so far Marc is on the money. As a lifelong Heinlein fan, the trilogy was wonderful. And I am suffering from the sleep deprivation to prove it. Highly recommended. Great use of science to lay out an alternative future universe with characters that are interesting and worthy of your attention.
