Inhibitor Phase


I do like Alastair Reynolds. I will pretty much buy anything he writes, even when the characters speak like old-timey pirates in the far future - and this new adventure in the Conjoiner-Demarchist universe is another great addition to the pantheon.

It is flawed - I think hemi-semi-demi Conjoiners are a bit far-fetched in terms of being near omnipotent, and Scythe (you'll meet her) is a bit advanced for a civilisation flung precipitately into ruin, but.... Reynolds has a way of grabbing you by the vitals, and pulling you along with him, headlong into the relativistic wolf-filled void, just to see what happens next.

Is good. You read B-)
