A wolf among sheep

My review of Wolves by Simon Ings (2014) as been posted on SFFWorld.

Wolves is a novel set in the near future that deftly explores the disjunct between perception and reality.

Wolves (2014) by Simon Ings - Both Right and Necessary

Somewhere along the line we appear to have become convinced that style is something quite distinct from content. We look at heavily stylised works and either lionise them for the way in which style and content complement each other or we chastise them for indulging in stylistic experimentation without ever bothering to ground the experiments in content or message. 3,695 more words

There is a kind of romance around piracy.  It is the romance of anti-authority figures and of a life lived not just in the margins but outside the boundaries.   746 more words

Interconnections

Dead Water by Simon Ings is the most fabulously dystopian novel about shipping, containers, ships, airships, tsunami, shipping, and dastardly deed that can happen when vast numbers of ships are circumnavigating the globes with vast numbers of containers on board.   363 more words
