Early Days

Okay. Hmm.

Wow.

So here I am blogging at long last. In lieu of any sort of preamble, I’ll just let you know what I’m thinking of doing here. I want to discuss writing and science fiction, politics and technology, life and family. Pretty much everything actually. But I’ll try to look at everything through the lens of that first item, writing and science fiction. I’ll include some of my own work to be read and judged as you see fit.

Since it so happens that the British Science Fiction Association has recently announced their award finalists, I thought I would set myself a mission of reading each and discussing the nominees here.

I haven’t read any of them yet, so all I can say is that I’m excited by the novelists. I’ve been a fan of China Mieville’s earlier work and have the greatest respect for Ursula Le Guin. I’ve found Stephen Baxter’s work dense and challenging, but I’m keen to see what he has to offer this time. All I’ve heard about Adam Roberts is that this novel is good, so I’m hoping he lives up to the hype.
