First Review of Reality 36

By

Reality 36 by Guy Haley is definitely one of our favourite science fiction titles of the year, and the first reviewer agrees with us!

While Robopocalypse is this year’s hottest robot release… Reality 36 is a superior novel in almost every way.

But why?

[The application of technology] just makes sense… This reality (so far as science fiction goes) is what makes the book so compelling. It’s an actual glimpse into the future as much as it’s a mystery yarn and an action thriller. Isn’t that what Science Fiction is all about?

He won’t get any arguments from us…

When bullets aren’t flying I felt like I was having a discussion with the author about the implications the Singularity will have on humanity. And that’s cool.

As I was reading the novel I was comparing it favorably to another debut from earlier this year – Hannu Rajaniemi’s The Quantum Thief. They really aren’t similar in any way other than they read with a similar pace and absence of information dumping (a pet peeve of mine).

Guy Haley has really produced a first rate robot novel. Angry Robot Books keeps churning out great additions in speculative fiction.

Awww, shucks!
