- No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell TurnbullThis review is on the advance copy of an unpublished work I received through NetGalley. No Gods, No Monsters by Cadwell Turnbull is due for release September 7th, 2021. The title of this novel is so very appropriate, on multiple levels. It is a pun on the anarchist/activist slogan.

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell is about a recently-returned Jesuit priest, Emilio Sandoz, the only survivor of a first-contact mission to meet sentient alien life. There is a lot of controversy about the mission, which was apparently launched in secret and funded by… Continue reading The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
- Remnant Population by Elizabeth MoonWhere do I even begin? It’s been a long time since I read a book that I loved as much as I love Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon. The protagonist, Ofelia, is an elderly woman who has lived the majority of her adult life on an alien world as a colonial worker for Sims Bancorp,… Continue reading Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon
