The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Unpick

I'm about a third of the way through and wishing that I was finished with The Callahan Chronicals. And not because I'm enjoying it, if that was in question. The stories, prose wise, are fine. A bit better than fine. But you really have to squint to see the science fiction in them. Worse, I can't find a scrap of a sense of wonder. Sure, the puns are fun, but the stories are anecdotal, mostly of the shaggy dog sort. Perhaps the popularity came from being different than the rest of stuff appearing in Analog during the seventies. This is my first encounter with Spider Robinson. I suspect it will be my last.

It struck me at about the three-quarters mark, that one of the things that bothers me about Callahan stories is that they have give me strong feeling of indulgence or what I am forced to describe as fan fiction (that is, "I am such a fan of Callahan's that I am going to write glowingly about it.") or, more charitably, utopian fiction (i.e. "Callahan's is the perfect bar.") To be fair, most fiction is a form idealization or the smoothing away of the less-than-esthetic elements and contradictions of reality. Alas, to paraphrase a famous saying, one man's utopia is another's distopia. Or another's irritatopia irritating-topia. Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz.

At a third of the way through, I'm not enjoying this novel as much as I thought I would. I like the other books I've read by Daniel Suarez, but I had real difficulty in engaging with the opening caving scene, and have developed a dislike for the boot camp section, which unfortunately lasted all the way through the first third of the book.Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz.  (e)

Titanborn wasn't particularly bad, but it wasn't particularly good. It left me disinclined to read the next book in the series. There were a number of tropes (such as the opening failed mission spurring the narrator on, and the family ties causing the discarding of deeply held beliefs) that I found too prominent as plot crutches support. The technology of the era had gaps that also were convenient in propelling the plot forward. There was one serious physics violation that left me wondering if the author had learned his physics from Star Wars space ships.  (e)
