N-Space

  • Au­thor: Lar­ry Niv­en

    Great for Lar­ry Niv­en fan­s, since it con­­tains some odd stuff and some au­­to­bi­o­­graph­i­­cal notes, which I liked.

Crashlander (Known Space)

    It's Lar­ry Niven, you know what you're get­t­ing. This book col­lects the short sto­ries that fol­low Be­owulf Sha­e­f­fer, the pro­­tag­o­nist of Neu­tron Star, and the on­­ly man to go try reach­ing the core. If you like known space you know who I am talk­ing about.

Titans of Chaos (Chronicles of Chaos, #3)

  • Au­thor: John C. Wright

    It kin­­da fiz­­zles. The au­thor tries to top ev­ery­thing by just pil­ing things high­­er, larg­er aries, more pow­er­­ful greek god­s, it ends feel­ing like Drag­on­ball Z, in­­­clud­ing the con­s­tant "dy­ing".

    Any­way, it was a fun se­ries.

Fugitives of Chaos (Chronicles of Chaos, #2)

    Less ex­po­si­­tion that in the first book of the tril­o­­gy, which is a good thing. How­ev­er, I am start­ing to get a feel­ing this whole se­ries is just a game of pa­per/rock­­/s­­cis­­sors where this par­a­digm beats that but is beat­­en by the oth­­er one. Since there are four paradig­m­s, it's al­­most a game of pa­per/rock­­/s­­cis­­sors/lizard/spock, but not quite.
