Larry Niven & Eric Lerner “Juggler of Worlds” – sequel to “Fleet of Worlds” in which we see several classic Beowulf Schaeffer stories from Sigmund Ausfaller’s PoV. If you know what I mean then you’ll want to read this one.
Damien Broderick’s “K-Machines” – sequel to “Godplayers” in which we learn more about the latest Player in the Contest of Worlds… and just w.t.f. the Contest is all about.
Just starting on Paul MacAuley’s “The Quiet War” – a Brit-SF writer who I have overlooked while wasting time reading Ken Macleod and Stephen Baxter apparently ;o)
