SO I’M READING S.M. STIRLING’S JUST-OUT The Tears Of The Sun, the latest in his Change stories, in what passes for my “spare time” lately. So far it’s quite good, on a par with the others in the series. It’s a big month for science fiction, as it’ll also see the publication of Neal Stephenson’s Reamde: A Novel. (No, that’s not a typo.) Alas, nobody’s sent me an advance copy of that one, but then I don’t really have time to do much more reading right now anyway, alas.
