Transcendent – Stephen Baxter

This is the third book in the Destiny’s Children series. This is actually more of a sequel to Coalescent than Exultant was. As with the previous two books there are 2 story lines intertwined. One is set just after Coalescent, and includes many of the characters from that previous book, and the 2nd story is […]

Exultant – Stephen Baxter

Just finished Exultant by Stephen Baxter. This is the 2nd book in the Destiny’s Children series, and is nominally a sequel to Coalescent. As outlined in the comments to the previous post about the 1st book Exultant isn’t really a direct sequel. It has none of the characters from the first book in it, and […]

Coalescent – Stephen Baxter

Just finished Coalescent by Stephen Baxter. I’ve had this sitting on my bookshelf for a while *. After recently rereading the brilliant Hellstrom’s Hive by Frank Herbert, I was thinking about a sequel to the Herbert book. I’d love to read more about the human colony in HH. What did the Government do about the […]

Culture Consumed 13

Culture consumed since the last list on 23rd August. Trainwreck – I’d never seen Amy Schumer in her Comedy Central TV show. So I went in to this not knowing what she was like. Both she and the film as a whole were really good. Funny, poignant, mostly well written and acted. Maybe a bit […]

Culture Consumed 12

Culture consumed this week. See previous post for more. Absolutely Anything – This was a bit erratic. The acting was good but the script was weak in places. Editing was weird. Liked the music though. I was pleasantly surprised to hear Roger Taylor singing the opening song. Rated 6/10. Pixels – The reviews for this […]

Journey to the Ants – Hölldobler and Wilson

Just ordered a copy of Journey to the Ants by Bert Hölldobler and Edward O. Wilson. It’s a book about how ants evolved and how they live in various habitats and colonies. This book seems to be a more accessible study of the subject of ants than their academic focused The Ants. The latter is […]
