Recent Books — Peregrine, Dog and Wolf, Baxter, Orfeo

  • Miss Pregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom HourBetweenDogandWolf_300dpiRiggs — basically, the X-Men in novel form. X-Men are more exciting tho this isn’t terrible.
  • Proxima by Stephen Baxter. Settling new planets isn’t for sissies. Unless you find a magic wormhole.
  • The Hour Between Dog and Wolf by John Coates. Our “rational” behaviour is driven by our physical bodies and emotions in ways we are just understanding. Interesting but drags on.
  • Orfeo by Richard Powers. A biohacker, a terrorist, or just eccentric? Nicely written.
