    I’m delighted to see my RED PLANET BLUES included on this list alongside the latest by my great friend and colleague Robert Charles Wilson. But Becky Robertson calls BURNING PARADISE Wilson’s “first work since his 2006 Hugo winner, SPIN.” Bob is much more prolific than that: BURNING PARADISE is his fourth novel since SPIN. In the interim he’s also published two sequels to SPIN, entitled AXIS and VORTEX, and a standalone novel, JULIAN COMSTOCK, all from Tor Books.

    I loved Red Planet Blues, the short story it was based on read like a trailer for the full length book! I’ve heard rumours there’s a more books from the Red Planet Blues coming? A prequel perhaps? Maybe Blue Planet Squared, Ha!

    I can’t wait to read Cory Doctorow’s Homeland, the pervious book Little Brother hit my ’1984′ nerve so hard a had to put it down and blow off steam.
