    1. What's annoying about this book is that because it's a Faction Paradox book, a book in a spin-off series of a spin-off book series of Doctor Who, very few people will ever read it, which is a crime, because it's fantastic. You kind of need a bit of a background in the 'relevant' Dr Who and Faction Paradox books, which doesn't really help; there is no 'Read THIS then THIS then THIS' guide, for example, but I honestly think you could read this on its own without any prior knowledge of anything and [...]


    2. An excellent attempt at a tricky niche genre - a murder mystery set in Heaven. Or at least, the Omega Point-style city in which everyone who ever lived (or might have lived, given history is in flux) is technologically resurrected. So in one sense it's Riverworld redone by someone who can write, and isn't tiresomely evangelising for metric and Esperanto. But beyond that, it has a lot more to say about parent-child relationships, and identity, and how it felt to realise that we were not in fact l [...]


    3. Warning - this is another book I can't claim to be unbiased about. Having been fortunate enough to be asked write a short story based in the city of the title, I picked this book up to get to the know the place. I'd been aware of the novel's reputation for a while, but it had yet to end up on my TBR pile. So with that in mindThe City is a galaxy sized habitat at the end of time, where every human who ever was or ever might have been lives a resurrected life of immortality. That simplifies things [...]


    4. I didn't finish the book, but as you can only either list your books as "Want-To Read", "Currently Reading" or "Read", I went with the latter choice, as it was the only that seemed to fit even remotely. So, my reviewI try to keep an open mind for most things - meeting new people, going to see a movie or checking out a new TV series, or even when starting a new book. This book came highly recommended, the highest recommendation coming from Faction Paradox creator, Lawrence Miles. So, without even [...]



    5. Second (or third, or twoth) of the Faction Paradox spinoff line.Stop me if you've heard this one: at the end of history, the entire human race is resurrected on an alien world, to live all together in immortal bodies. (SF writers take this premise as an excuse to throw lots of entertaining historical figures into the story. Yet another demonstration that Dante was an SF writer.)Anyhow, this is the same trope as _Riverworld_ and vulgar Christian eschatology, but it embraces the space-time-opera g [...]
