Only the good stuff

I read a lot and love to read. I find great pleasure in good science fiction, and enjoy thinking about the great stories I've read and agonizing over what will come next. The information I provide here is for me. I long been a voracious reader, but never a review writer. But I've been tempted to try to document my thoughts on the why, what and how of the books I enjoyed. But do feel free to peruse, and please do suggest a great read you think I'd like.

This is thin fare. I dislike short stories for my science fiction and bought this by mistake. Still I like the revelation space opera and so gave it a go. The initial story was promising and provided some interesting backstory for the earlier books I had read. But the stories became thinner and thinner, and I eventually broke through the ice and swam to safety.

I doubt I will pick it up again.
