This week marks the deadline for my translation of The Exodus Towers by Jason M. Hough. Somehow, despite all planning, the end is always a very delicate time – I just can’t squeeze in a love letter or other blog post. But in case you need a recommendation anyway: One of my all-time favorite books, Implied Spaces by Walter Jon Williams, is on sale this week (eBook editions, just look it up at your preferred seller – mine is Smashwords). It’s a story about a bright future on many worlds, and it’s very interesting to see Implied Spaceshow suspense is created in a universe where mankind seems to have found solutions for most big questions. If you are interested in the craft (or just good old ingenious entertainment), this novel also shows how style and genre work, because every chapter presents a new genre. Also featuring speaking cats, soul-devouring swords and battle by throwing around wormholes. I’m going to write more about this novel with its brilliant characters and formidable concepts some day soon, but in the meantime, you could just go ahead and read it. You’re not going to get a better deal this week!
