Started Variable Star
today, the novel that Robert Heinlein left unfinished and was completed by Spider Robinson. I've heard mixed reviews, but I haven't read enough Heinlein and nothing by Robinson to let comparisons with other works get in the way. Hopefully that will let me enjoy the book on its own merits. So far it isn't bad.
But more significantly I stumbled across a book called Count To A Trillion
by John C. Wright. I started the first page and before I knew it I was done the prologue. The writing was sweeping me along, but I didn't buy the book because I wanted to do some research on the author and see if anything else he's written might catch my attention more. Has anyone heard of him? I'm eyeing the Orphans of Chaos
trilogy at the moment.
