Recent Books — Ninefox Gambit, Have You Tried Working, The Darkening Age

  • Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee.  This settled down into basic space opera but some fun language and ideas about an era in which we have dramatically more control over the physical world.
  • Have You Tried Working? By Anthony Gardner.  Ugh.  Poorly written, and then his flippancy about CTE turned me completely off.  Can’t figure out why I bought this.
  • The Darkening Age by Catherine Nixey.  This won’t be popular with some people, a look into how the intolerant early Christian Church destroyed the arts, literature, and science of Western world and contributed to the dark ages.
