I've just finished "The Ark", book 1 of the Children of a Dead Earth series (rather good for a freebie e-book).

Just about to start on Peter F. Hamilton's latest epic, "Salvation" having received a physical hardback for Christmas. I'm really looking forward to this - and there is a new Alastair Reynolds due out in January which I have been waiting for - the sequel to "Revenger" which was a great return to form for Reynolds.
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

"Brexit and Ireland" by the Irish Times journalist David Connolly. Early days but it appears to be very comprehensive

I'm currently near the end of Hamilton's Salvation - which is terrific, and in the car, I am listening to the audio book of Alastair Reynolds "Revenger" as a warm up to "Shadow Captain" to refresh my memory.

Just started on Alastair Reynolds "Shadow Captain", sequel to "Revenger".

btw, Peter F. Hamilton's "Salvation" was a terrific start to his new set of books. I'm now very much looking forward to "Salvation Lost".

Started in Cixin Liu's The Three Body Problem. Book 1 of a fascinating Chinese Sci-Fi trilogy (together with The Dark Forest and Death's End it forms Remembrance of Earth's Past).
