Current SF reading

I haven’t been reading as much sf, but I do like some of Charles Stross’s work, especially the first several books of the Merchant Princes series. It’s getting a bit soap opera-ish, and we’ll have to see what happens. I also liked Iron Sunrise quite a bit.

I don’t believe in Raymond Kurzweil’s Singularity concept, but I enjoy Stross’s writing nevertheless.

John Crowley remains one of my favorite writers. He recently completed his AEgypt tetralogy, which he started back in the mid-1980s. My opinion is that he has trouble with endings, but Endless Things ended the series very well, in my opinion.
