WHAT I’M READING: Richard Morgan’s latest, Woken Furies: A Takeshi Kovacs Novel. I’m in the bookwriting crunch period, and I had tried to quit reading novels to get more done, but discovered that losing that downtime actually hurt rather than helped.

I like this book so far — I’ve liked his earlier Takeshi Kovacs novels, like Altered Carbon and Broken Angels. (Market Forces, on the other hand, left me cold and I didn’t finish it — a book with that title should have a more economically plausible setting.)
