Format: Paperback
this is another good book from tricia sullivan. like double vision it's a lot of fun. her characters are great - especially when they start kicking back.

what really marks tricia out is her way of writing dense, deeply poetic passages about what the modern world is doing to human nature. towards the end of this book there is the most extraordinary sustained paean to salvaging humanity from consumerism and over-rationalism i've come across in ages. and the journey to it is great too with her usual mind-twisting adventures.

really no-one writes about where we are like she does - grieving, fighting, elegiac and celebratory. and so relevant to modern consciousness its breathtaking. its like hearing your own howls given air and allowed to make music.

my one reservation is that the line between mental health and sci-fi narrative tropes isn't handled as adroitly as it could have been. double vision walked the line a lot better - here things get a little too defined leading to a few disturbing implications. but, you know, this is a writer who is putting herself out there and taking risks so we can't expect a pitch perfect performance every time (a major theme of the book actually).

a big, edgy, fun, challenging read from a woman with a heart.

by the way, its probably a good idea to read double vision before this one. it will enhance your enjoyment of it a lot more.

Marvellous - I devoured this in three sittings. Kind of like 'Z for Zachariah' meets 'The Eyre Affair' - student Cassidy Walker has a very strange end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it to contend with. And though this is high-concept stuff, the writing style is refreshingly straightforward. Wonderful, wonderful food for thought.

Format: Paperback
I read this in one night, it was so gripping. Sullivan has carved out her own niche, she is so removed from the mainstream tropes of SF and that's a good thing. If you're looking for warring empires and flaming hulks of spaceships, you probably won't enjoy this.

However, if you're looking for a wonderful ride through mindbending / expanding landscapes and some truly icky and spooky set-pieces, buy this. Parts of it reminded me of Dick's Valis trilogy, it has that same kind of unsettling and simultaneously compelling imagery.

Without a doubt, Sullivan is one of the most important writers in current SF.
