Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep: Philip K Dick

Dick is a legend, largely unknown and unappreciated in this time, writing over 30 novels and even more short stories. Many have been adapted into some of the most popular movies and TV shows of our time, including “Total Recall” and “Minority Report.”

This one is the inspiration for Blade Runner. It’s one of the few times I’ve liked the video version better than the written one.

The Churn: James SA Corey

Solid back story of how Amos came to be the man he is, along with how he came to be hiding out in the “expanse.” Solid, but i was hoping for a bit more wordspace and time to develop it a bit further, not just a novella.

Nancy Kress: Beggars in Spain

I’ve always admired Nancy Kress’ columns in Writer’s Digest. This is the first book of hers I’ve read.

And it’s really, really good! Set in the future where gene modification allows a select group of people not to need sleep, they find that they also become super intelligent and never age.

Society struggles to accommodate this new “species” and conflict ensues.

Good read! Part of a trilogy, so I’m looking forward to the next two.
