Monday Book Pick – Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan

A delightful murder mystery wrapped in some really good SciFi. The hero, who really is not a nice man, finds himself back on Earth in a new body. A bit of suprise, since his last one was killed on another planet, involved in crimes that should have kept his consciousness in storage for quite a bit longer. It proceeds to get weird from there, but in a good way for the reader.

  2. Yes, Altered Carbon is a great book. It is the book that restored my interest in sf, as I’d gotten tired of fluff and/or “how a spaceship drive could work” sf. My favorite of the thre Kovacs books is actually Broken Angels, the next one in the series. I was equally surprised it was not another murder mystery, but military sf. The writing style is somewhat different as well.

  4. Broken Angels was my favorite of the three as well. If you like Military SF, have you tried anything by John Ringo?
