Book Review: New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson

New York 2140 is an ambitious novel about what New York City will be like in the year 2140 if human-caused global warming continues unchecked. If you’re interested in New York, global warming, science fiction, political fiction, or all of the above, I strongly recommend that you read this novel.

Book Review: Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

I’ve enjoyed other Paolo Bacigalupi books, but I initially put off reading Ship Breaker because it was listed as young adult fiction. When I read that it was being made into a movie, though, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad that I did!

Book Review: Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

As a lifelong science fiction fan and author, I’m embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to start reading the works of award-winning science fiction author Octavia E. Butler. No one really recommended her to me until a few years ago, and it took a while for me to take the recommendation to heart and track down a copy of one of her books.

I’m glad that I did.
