Review: Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds @ Infinispace.net

It’s no secret that I’m an Alastair Reynolds fan.  His mixture of astrophysics, space opera, and gothic noir really scratches my space opera itch, especially his Revelation Space setting.  All of his books, that I’ve read thus far, have been solid and entertaining works of sc…

Retro Review: The Fountains of Paradise @ Infinispace.net

Note:  This review contains minor spoilers.
That last time I posted an article about Neal Stephenson it was after reading his monstrous, brilliant, and, some would say, inaccessible novel Anathem.  In that review I point out this possible inaccessibility linked to ob…
