Mike Resnick Interview & Concatenation Reviews

Mike Resnick is interviewed by John Joseph Adams over on Sci Fi Wire. They talk about the Starship series - Mutiny, Pirate and the upcoming Mercenary and the commander in charge of the Starship Teddy R. throughout the series, Wilson Cole - "He is living proof that even in the military, brains will triumph over brawn just about every time. " Mike also discusses his other projects, including his new role as executive editor of Jim Baen's Universe.

Meanwhile, a handful of new Pyr reviews popped up on the Science Fact & Science Fiction Concatenation site.

Susan Griffiths says of Chris Roberson's Paragaea: A Planetary Romance:

"I found the storytelling effective enough to conjure up images in my mind as well as inspiring interest in the characters and the world they inhabit. I found it a shame to get to the end of the book as I could have gladly read more - and it was perfect to lose myself in as I sat on a train that was delayed for several hours to the point when I lost track of time. So, on that note, I would recommend it as an enjoyable, well written and an engaging fantasy adventure with a consistently developing story."

Whereas Tony Chester really likes George Zebrowski's Macrolife: A Mobile Utopia:

" SF classic and a book which contains all the sense of wonder that truly good SF could wish for... Bearing in mind that this is an old novel and, therefore, one which was heavily influenced by the science of its day, it has to be said that it has held up remarkably well over time and does not seem implausible even now, even given current cosmology... Macrolife ticks all the right boxes, and it is probably its very unfussiness that has contributed to its longevity. ...good is good and quality tells, and I'm damn sure there's many a current writer of SF who would give their right arms to write a book that will survive as long as this one. Needless to say, recommended to all."
