    McKillip They have lived among us for centuries-distant, separate, just out of sight. A strange obsession on gender reassignment In the s when they were written, the idea of menage a trois would been cutting edge, relevant and spicy. Now, it seems trite and artificially erotic. But before their indoctrination is complete, an alien intruder infiltrates and destroys the system, and the reason for the odyssey is never learned. Pity he did so with decidedly boring junk.

    But in general I like books that toss me into the middle of things and challenge me to keep up, so I didn't feel like I was missing much. How is there a space program if the economic malaise of the 70s never ends and only worsens? That's no surprise since it's written by Paul La Farge, one of the smartest, wildest literary talents in the game today…. La Farge treats readers to two equally compelling and dubious stories…. But it kept my interest, nonetheless. A strange obsession on gender reassignment

    At places it reads like a scientific article, with references to PNP and NPN transistors, and at places it becomes an impossible-to-parse technobubble. How is there a space program if the economic malaise of the 70s never ends and only worsens? Apparently sometime in the next century, astronauts lose their formal "This is Houston. I have long been a tremendous admirer of all of La Farge's work; this novel is my favorite. However, there was enough backstory that it didn't matter. But now, ten years later, Summer feels uncertainty about her place with Lindy and starts to wonder about where she came from.

In the ocean of night book

There is some widly inventive science fiction here; Benford is good when he isn't segueing with faux-titilation. The Night Ocean is about love and deception -- about the way that stories earn our trust, and betray it.

As a heartbroken Marina follows her missing husband's trail in an attempt to learn the truth, the novel moves across the decades and along the length of the continent, from a remote Ontario town, through New York and Florida to Mexico City.

Ordered to destroy the comet, he instead discovers that it is actually the shell of a derelict space probe - a wreck with just enough power to emit a single electronic signal The unexpected stowaway added to his problems and then his diving began to pay dividends.

Take out the filler I mentioned above and you would have a tight and entertaining story.
