A Small But Pleasant Honor



The Portalist included my novel Bones of the Earth in their list of best science fiction of the first decade of this century. Naturally, I'm chuffed. Those novels on the list that I've read (most of them) are books you'd be honored to have your own compared to.

This kind of list is clickbait, of course, and an invitation to argue about what should have been included. 

So, what the heck... which SF novels published in the years 2000 to 2010 SHOULD have been included? Feel free to be effusive in your praise. (I'm disqualifying my own works from this discussion.)

Well, I'm not one to effuse but ...

[1] John Kessel's THE MOON AND THE OTHER. That's a book that got even less of the love and attention that it deserved than did BONES OF THE EARTH.

[2] One of Ken MacLeod's singletons. Probably INTRUSION. Or maybe THE EXECUTION CHANNEL or THE NIGHT SESSIONS.

HURRAH! At last some critical acclaim for what I think is one of your best books. It would make a great streaming series. I loved the dinosaurs that sing as the sun comes up!
