Enter into Neth Space and you will find thoughts and reviews of books and other media that fit the general definition of speculative fiction. This includes the various genres and sub-genres of fantasy, science fiction, epic fantasy, high fantasy, hard sci-fi, soft sci-fi, new weird, magical realism, cyberpunk, urban fantasy, slipstream, horror, alternative history, SF noir, etc. Thoughts are my own, I'm certainly not a professional, just an avid reader avoiding his day job.

A Room With a (Spectacular) View + Update
I'm off at a conference for the next 7 days, so it'll be silence around here once things get going. At least when I travel I get reading time on the plane and such.
But, the conference is in a place I've wanted to visit for nearly 30 years - Banff in the Canadian Rockies. So far it's just as beautiful as I've always thought. Later in the week I get to hike around on a glacier (awsome!) - which is great geologist cred (I've also felt an earthquake and closely observed a volcanic eruption). And to top it off I'm staying in one of the nicest hotels in the world - Fairmont Banff Springs (did you know it's a castle?). The view is great.
