Amazing Stories, May 1930

Daily Thoughts 11/23/2014

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I have been reading some more of The Goliath Stone.  Part of the story is about nanotechnology meant to mine an asteroid becoming self aware.  Nanotechnology is the deus ex machina for many improbable things in this novel.

I finished reading The Goliath Stone this afternoon.  I enjoyed it.  It is lighthearted with numerous references to other science fiction and fantasy writers from Robert Heinlein to Douglas Adams to Terry Pratchett.  It has a libertarian streak to it focusing on individual freedom, life extension, and nanotechnology.  There is also a bit on the idea of space planes, turbines, and asteroid mining.
