Science Fiction Worth Reading

Infinite Matrix goes out of business this week, and leaves us behind much fine reading, including a short story by Rudy Rucker, Cory Doctorow, Robert Sheckley (!) and upcoming stuff from William Gibson, Charlie Stross, and more. Additional sci-fi to read: The latest issue of Futurismic

Also, Emerald City's December issue gives us opinions like "Literary Fiction For People Who Hate Literary Fiction", reviews of "The Cuckoo Boys", "An Occupation of Angels", and "Demon Download". Also from emcit, a thought on the recent Narnia walk-out of the WTO trade talks, reported here

the interesting question is, if Aslan really is Jesus, does this mean that He’s fed up of being bullied by Dubya?
Samit Basu's new book, "The Manticore's Secret" is out in India, and doing well, one hears. It is a sequel to "The Simoqin Prophecies"

My own shelf is pretty packed. In the science fiction realm, I'm currently reading Harry Turtledove's "Drive To The East" and have Kim Stanley Robinson's books, Ashok Banker's stuff and a couple more queued up.
