Read: The Dark Forest. Cixin Liu

Sequel to Three Body. New translator (I can't tell, but you might be able to). I liked this, I thought it was a good sequel, which raises some interesting questions. The Trisolaran tech/science remains firmly in the "magic" category; I continue to assume that the "this style looks like it should be hard SF" is my cultural background speaking, having not read any other Chinese SF to know how this stands in that context.

Reading:
I started reading Star Wars: Aftermath because Chuck Wendig wrote it and I heard that it was TERRIBLE and had GAY PEOPLE in it... which was obviously rather more of a recomendation than the annoying people thought it would be ;-p

But then Ancillary Mercy came out, so now I'm reading that. So far so excellent.
