Wow! Ken does it again!,
This review is from: Cosmonaut Keep: Engines of Light: Book One (Hardcover)
This guy just keeps getting better with every book. Macleod creates an entire cosmology with Cosmonaut Keep that should provide him with innumerable angles to explore in the Engines of Light series. The typical Macleod elements of socialist politics and cyber-coolness are here in droves for fans of his previous works, but even more interesting to me are the suggestions implied within the book that he will use this series to explore the mythologies and facts of the Earth's development. I have to say that I never thought I'd pick up a hard-science-fiction novel that isn't afraid to dabble in pixies, giants, and other archetypical elements of fantasy... Ken is simply the best SF writer working in the EU right now, and most American writers should look to his works for inspiration as they create the speculative fiction of the 21st century. Thanks for another fine work.
