For lovers of highly technical science fiction that relies on constant action, Project Hail Mary will leave them satisfied. Others may shake their heads with disappointment, expecting something better from Andy Weir.

I wholeheartedly recommend this novel to anyone interested in sci-fi, and also to those interested in contemporary political thrillers who do not mind a sci-fi background to the story.

‘All My Sunsets’ was a leisurely and enjoyable read. It discussed themes such as mortality, progress, and love in a way that had me thinking deeply. Recommended to lovers of science fiction stories that make you feel good about progress.
Review of ‘Parallel’ by James M. Corkill ****
Posted 16/12/2020 in My Book Reviews
This lengthy novella is not a serious work and does not pretend to be, suitable for young readers interested in a grand adventure without being bothered about plotting inconsistencies or lack of characterization. Despite numerous story issues, ‘Parallel’ is an entertaining read.

What would you do if you knew you had only a few weeks to live? What would you do if you suddenly discovered that there is a reset button you can use to start afresh? The novel is cleverly plotted, beautifully written, and entertaining.
My new SF novel ‘All My Sunsets’ out now!

Starsight does not pretend to be a serious work, but it is a diverting read and eminently forgettable.

As with other Stephen Baxter’s books, World Engines starts off as a compelling story. However, Stephen Baxter rushes the ending, leaving the reader highly unsatisfied.
