I’ll remember it for you piece meal

Following up last week’s 2014 book list, this is the official list of books I read in 2015. I read more books that contained more ideas I’d never even considered possible than I ever thought existed. On that confusing note: the list.

There were some incredible series’ that I read in 2015. Each seemed to have more crazy ideas and crazy detail than the last. The overarching theme of the year was trans-humanism, edging into post-humanism.

The conclusion to the Takeshi Kovacs novels had the single best zero-gee combat sequence I’ve ever read, while Stross’s Saturn’s Children explores the shadows hanging over a post-human Solar system. Hannu Rajaniemi created the single most incredible and unprecedented world I’ve ever seen in the Jean le Flambeur novels.
