Update

I'm about to move house (all the way to the Republic of Ireland) so will be offline for a while, hopefully no more than a couple of weeks at the outside, although if I get a chance I'll put up the Dreaming Void review from an internet cafe. As a mini-review it's an interesting change of pace from Hamilton, marking a maturing in his writing style (although the somewhat unnecessary sex scenes are still present and correct), but there are some minor problems in pacing. However, it's the first Hamilton book in a while that doesn't feel overloaded with secondary characters and plotlines of limited importance, and the book ends leaving you wanting more, which is a good sign. A more detailed review to follow.

I continue to read China Mieville's Looking for Jake and will probably follow that up with Ian Cameron Esslemont's Night of Knives.
