I have no plans for this weekend other than catching up on some cleaning so I am hoping to get caught up on my reviews then (or at least caught up on what I have right now since I’m almost done with The Cipher by Diana Pharoah Francis and don’t think I’ll be able to manage 3 reviews over the weekend). These next reviews will be Tobias Buckell’s Crystal Rain and Iain M. Banks’s Use of Weapons. I seem to be pretty much the only speculative fiction fan who didn’t enjoy the former, but I did like the latter very much (although still not quite as much as the fantastic The Player of Games in the same series).

Diana Pharoah Francis is an author who is new to me. So far, the book is all right but I’m not so sure I’ll be seeking out the next book in the series.

After The Cipher, I think I might try another book by an author I’ve never read before.
