It was also a pleasure to read some positive science fiction for a change; despite the narrator being literally beset with Nazis, bootleggers, Russian spies, and the government, it was overall a cheerful and uplifting little book. If you miss Heinlein's early stuff (you know, pre-incest-kick) you should check this one out.
Trial of Flowers [ Powell's | Amazon ] reviewed at Whatta Fiasco.
...this time he wrote well and pushed some of my buttons. I particularly love that his characters face real and serious consequences.
Mainspring [ Powell's | Amazon ] reviewed at SF Signal.
The setting of Mainspring alone should vault this story to the top of 'to-read' lists everywhere. The fact that Jay Lake has created such an interesting, personal story to boot is just icing.
Go on...you know you want the whole set.
