Response to Dr. Strange (Reply #7)

8. Loved "The Scar"

Mieville comes up with the most intriguing aliens. "Perdido Street Station" is another in the series that I really enjoyed. Actually, I wish I'd read it first, since it explains a lot that happens in "The Scar" that baffled me the first time I read it.

I'm kind of ambivalent about Simmons. While I liked the Hyperion series, he's recently come out as a teabagger, and his latest is a real stinkeroo according to the reviews: some on Amazon compare it to the most unhinged Glenn Beck ravings. Sad, from an author whose earlier works I admired.
