Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just reviewed Yu’s “How to Live Safely in a SF Universe” for SBR

Folks, here’s the latest review; for those of you who’ve read my Amazon.com review from last year, this goes into a little more detail about the plot and gives a short snippet from page 213.  (I loved HOW TO LIVE SAFELY IN A SCIENCE FICTIONAL UNIVERSE last year; that is unchanged.)

Now, as to why I reviewed it again?  It’s a good book that makes me laugh and think — rare, that combination — and it’s about to come out in trade paperback (meaning it’ll be a little cheaper to buy — $11 versus $16 or thereabouts).

So if you somehow missed this book last year, and you like SF, philosophy, and humor — because philosophy doesn’t have to be dry as dust nor boring as Hell — you will love Charles Yu’s book.
