Off the Bookshelf: Redemption Ark, Dreaming Void, Far Side of the World

by Ken Newquist / August 12, 2009

I'm off to a good start on my Summer 2009 Reading List, having made a considerable dent it during my early summer vacation by reading Alistair Reynolds' Redemption Ark, Peter F. Hamilton's The Dreaming Void and finally finishing the audio version of Patrick O'Brain's The Far Side of the World.

Soliciting books for my Summer 2009 Reading List

by Ken Newquist / June 6, 2009

It's almost summer again, which means it's time for me to start assembling that long-running Nuketown tradition: the Summer Reading List. (check out Radio Active #50 for my 2007 reading list, and Radio Active #69 for my 2008 one).

The reading list is my chance to catch up on stuff I missed during the rest of the year, as well as to read some books I've meant to get, but never did. This time around, I'm sticking mostly to science fiction in general and space opera in particular. I've got a few books already lined up, but I'm looking for suggestions: send me yours by posting a comment or emailing me at nuketown@gmail.com. I'd also love to know what's on your summer reading list, so post those books as well!

Off the Shelf: New Space Opera, Open Game Table, Space Opera Renaissance

by Ken Newquist / May 23, 2009

The spring hasn't been a great time for fiction reading. After my winter reading spree, I fell into back into my video game reviewing routine, but I did manage to get a few new books in: The New Space Opera, The Open Game Table, and The Space Opera Renaissance.

SciFiWire.com: 18 Sci-Fi Twitter Feeds You Should Be Following

by Ken Newquist / March 26, 2009

My column about  science fiction folks worth following on Twitter is up on SciFiWire.com. It's a pretty expansive list, with 18 people in the main story, and another five that didn't make the active list, but were still worth noting. This pretty big project -- you wouldn't think it would be, Twitter being Twitter -- but it takes a goodly amount of time to find, follow and read this amount of Twitter feeds (actually, there were more than this during the research phase).
