Back in Town.

Hi again! It's been days since I posted. That's because I've been reading full time. We have been a little sick, stranded at home and we've had much free time. So, this is the list of recent books I've read. I intend to write about them in future releases but, as you know, life is what happens to you while you're making other plans.

Here is the list:

Anderson, Poul - Brain wave

The Earth suddenly moves out of a field that has been constraining the intelligence of every being for thousands of years. Within weeks all animal life on earth becomes about 5 times as intelligent. The novel goes through the triumphs and tribulations of various people and non-human animals and groups on earth after this event.

Bacigalupi, Paolo - The windup girl

In a post-oil era, out-of-control mutations and the monopoly of huge food corporations with its GM patents have turned calories into the greatest commodity and the unit in which wealth is measured. In Thailand, and only there, a recovery plant varieties industry flourish under the patronage of a genius of biotechnology who has taken refuge there.

Bodard, Aliette de - The jaguar house, in shadow

An alternative history in which Mexico has become the world-leading Mexica empire, ranging from the ancient religion that requires human sacrifices and nanotechnology able to turn holy warriors into supermen.

Bradbury, Ray - Something wicked this way comes

Two 13-years old boys who have a harrowing experience with a nightmarish traveling carnival that comes to their Midwestern town one October. . The carnival's leader is the mysterious "Mr. Dark" who bears a tattoo for each person who, lured by the offer to live out his secret fantasies, has become bound in service to the carnival. Mr. Dark's malevolent presence is countered by that of Will's father, Charles Halloway, who harbors his own secret desire to regain his youth.
