Once again, I've left this post for very late at night, and tonight I'm having back issues - not meaning to complain (this is something I deal with a lot, so no point in going on and on about it) but it translates tonight, into me not providing links under the covers like I usually do.
Last week I finished Worldwired by Elizabeth Bear. Wow. This is the final of the trilogy about Jenny - a native canadian (Indian) aging ex-military conscripted back into the military after being "in hiding" in the slums of America...it's a very trippy series - futuristic and yet set in the late 21st century. In this version of our future America is no longer a superpower, much of the world is lost to rising waters....many countries have been swallowed up by others...It's a believable future. Anyway, this last book has to do with plots, betrayals and artificial intelligent sentients, aliens from outerspace and starships. It was a very good trilogy with an amazing final novel. Seriously, Ms Bear has a brain for SciFi, political plotting and computer involved storytelling. That woman must have the IQ of a genius! boy o boy.
by the way - last week I didn't do very well with visiting other Monday blogs and making comments - I really meant to, but it was a bit of a rough week. I will make a point of visiting other posts. Even though I might not be so great at making the comments, I do enjoy very much many of the blogs that are out there. I try to follow the bloggers that are following me, but I may have missed some of them. Hope to be "seeing" you around the web, everyone!
