Showed up on my feed and the profile comments about getting into scifi/steampunk lately resonates as I've been noticing the same. Also of curious note, scanning back the first 20-30 books recently read, there's no overlap in my shelves.
But I like your comments on "I sold my soul on Ebay" and "Sleight of Hand" re: Simon Hayes. I love humorous scifi (Robert Asprin's Phule series is a fave) and always love finding new authors.
Thank you for the Follow. I appreciate it.
I too am an avid sci-fi reader. I had read all the Foundation books (Asimov), along with many other writers years ago. Now I am in the midst of re-reading many Asimov books, including his more recent editions to the Foundation series. I'm reading them in order and am up to FORWARD THE FOUNDATION.
If you have a chance, check out my novel HYPERSPACE. It's not sci-fi, but an extremely realistic novel concerning the ramifications later in life of post-birth trauma.
To get a good idea of the psychology on which the book is based, scroll to THE MOST IMPORTANT NOVEL OF THE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURIES. After reading that post, click into 4 Comments on the bottom of that post and read the interchange I had with a skeptic. It is instructive as to why mistreatment of newborns is disastrous for the individual throughout his or her life. HYPERSPACE deals with this disaster in one individual. The prose is as good as it gets.
Anyway, thanks for the contact and stay in touch when you can.

Hey Rick, I got through the first 3 chapters yesterday. It's a book about identity in Christmas, and works through Ephesians to unpack what that means. So far it's an excellent book though not the first to deal with the topic. However, being Driscoll, the writing is engaging, pastoral, footnoted like crazy, and punchy in the right places. From my first forays into it, I would say it's worth your time.
