February 2014
Raft by Stephen BaxterBeen meaning to read this for a while. I enjoyed some of this other series. It feels like an age since I read some proper traditional sci-fi. Finished: I like it, ended quite suddenly though. I'll probably get around to the sequels.
July 2009
Origin by Stephen BaxterI liked this, but didn't enjoy it as much as the previous two in the series. I like Stephen Baxter's hard science approach though, I'll read more.
September 2008
Space by Stephen BaxterI preferred Time to this book, but I still enjoyed it.
June 2007
Time by Stephen BaxterRead about it on Byte's booklist, sounds interesting.
July 2003
Web 2027 by Stephen BaxterDon't read this, its a bunch of recycled Neal Stephenson plots written by, what sounds like, the people responsible for Scooby Doo, probably with the assistance of Enid Blyton.
