SFBRP #531 - M R Carey - Infinity Gate - Pandominion #1

Is it “genre-defying” or does M R Carey just change gears every time he runs out of steam? Luke talks to Juliane about Infinity Gate, a novel without an ending in a series of, so far, a single book.

SFBRP #529 - Martha Wells - System Collapse - Murderbot Diaries #7

Juliane and Luke talk about System Collapse, a book that’s so badly written that (apart from not knowing what is going on (or who is who) and being annoyed by nested parenthesis) they are worried Martha Wells is giving introverts a bad role model in Murderbot.

SFBRP #525 – Greg Bear – Eon – The Way #1

SFBRP #525 - Greg Bear - Eon - The Way #1

Very few novels stand the test of time! Luke isn’t sure why he thought Greg Bear writing in the 80’s would hold up as well as Ursula K LeGuin writing in the 70’s.
