The Outside, by Ada Hoffmann, is a mix of #scifi and Lovecraftian #horror (what with the unknowable entities that will melt your brain thing), fascinating in its techno-religious imagery. Check it out. #reading #reading2020

Ok, and I JUST realized that this is set in the same universe as Chu’s “Lives of Tao” books, which I skipped, but now have to read. I am facepalming SO HARD. 🤦🏻♂️
TL;DR: you still have mixed feelings about the protagonists. Very very good.
“You are you”, and it took me until the just before the end to put the pieces together. Touches on #technology and #identity, #race and #racism, empathy, compassion, revenge, and a humdinger of an ending! #reading #scifi #reading2020
