The Comet

The weekend disappeared before the thunder and light of Karl Schroeder’s Sun of Suns and Queen of Candesce — the first two books in the Virga series. They are staggeringly compelling. They are the whole package: aeronautical high adventure, fantastic characterization, and singularity science fiction.

More than once, I found myself thinking of Last Exile. Not bad, Schroeder. Not bad at all.
