I’m no longer at the Javits Center with its horrible dystopian wifi, and after a small break I’ll be off to have dinner with friends. Because friends are cool that way. So to keep you busy, and because by now I’m sure you’re not tired of me talking about Redshirts, here are three new reviews for you to look at.
First, at Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow (disclosure: friend of mine) says this:
Redshirts both realizes and transcends its premise, and is at once a tribute to, and a piss-take on, the best and worst that space opera has to offer.
Then, over at the Bad Astronomer blog, Phil Plait (disclosure: friend of mine) says this:
I sat down and did something I almost never, ever do: I read the whole thing through. I mean it; I found myself voraciously consuming the book. It’s a science fiction novel that in many ways is a parody of “Star Trek”, but to think it’s just that is pretty unfair.
Finally, over at The Secret Liar (disclosure: I have no idea who these dudes are), there is this:
Redshirts is a quick read that’s full not only of humor, but also real emotion and thoughtful commentary.
I’ve had an interesting day; hope yours is going well too.
