finished reading The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal

The Fated Sky (Paperback, 2019, Rebellion Publishing) No rating

The Fated Sky continues the grand sweep of alternate history begun in The Calculating Stars …

The way this book weaves together the science, the humanity, and with them familiar cultural baggage, it's like going on an adventure without this sense that it's a form of escapism or "could never happen." There's definitely something to be said for reading sci-fi written by people other than white men. I'm looking forward to starting the next book in the trilogy!

An aside, I may never shake the experience of the chapter when they used "the bag." My goodness.
