A list of books I’ve read recently, along with a very short pass/fail recommendation:
- Gregory Benford’s In the Ocean of Night
Pass – not up to his usual standards.
- Stephen Baxter’s Exultant
Baxter is always mind-blowingly amazing.
- Beyond Flesh
A compilation of short science fiction stories – very, very good.
- Through Gates of Splendor
The story of Elisabeth Elliot and 4 missionaries who died in Ecuador. Source for the movie End of the Spear. Very good!
- Canadians Behind Enemy Lines by Roy Maclaren
WWII retrospective of Canadians in German-occupied Europe. Good, a bit draggy.
- Voices of a War Remembered by Bill McNeil
Simple true stories of Canadians in WWII – very good.
