I am reading book two of the Three Body Problem.

Chinese SF definitely does not fuck around. This shit is very good.
I kinda stalled in the middle of book one. Could be it doesn't lend itself to audio. Not everything works well in that format. Just started Bernard Cornwell's Fools And Mortals, some kind of thriller set around Shakespeare in 16th century London. We'll see, every one in a while I don't like a Cornwell book.
We are only accustomed to dealing with like twenty online personas at a time so when we only have about ten people some people have to be strawmanned in order to advance our same relative go nowhere nonsense positions. -TheReal_ND

I heard Hancock on the Joe Rogan podcast and have been loving his stuff ever since. Rollicking adventures through prehistory searching for clues to Atlantis. Non fiction that feels like fiction! Is Hancock a genius or a nut job.... Who cares! I haven't had this much fun learning about ancient archeological finds probably ever.
