Honestly, when there are no more instalments of the Murderbot Diaries, I’m going to be so very sad. I basically want to be Murderbot’s friend at this point, but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be uncomfortable with that. So this is the third in the series after All Systems Red and Artificial Condition. And it is still …
Artificial Condition is the sequel to All Systems Red (in the Murderbot Diaries). In the sequel novella, we follow our favourite freed Murderbot on a mission to find out about something that happened in its past.
A brilliantly quick read with a delightful lead character.
The sequel to Infomocracy takes us to the margins of the micro-democratic system and of Information’s reach.
In this episode of Science Fiction Double Feature, I talk to Malka Older, author of the science fiction mystery-action-thriller, Infomocracy. We then find out about the state of e-democracy and e-participation with Stefan Strauß from the Institute of Technology Assessment in the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
A smart sci-fi thriller, set in the election year after the world has been divided into micro-democracies. But is the election under threat, and with that threat, the undermining of the entire micro-democracy system?
The Sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab, we find ourselves in Red London for a wizard’s tournament with our favourite antagonistic couple Kell and Lila.
