    Expendable af James Alan Gardner (sandstone78)
    sandstone78: Expendable also follows the lives of space exploration crew members who are considered expendable. The protagonist, Festina Ramos, has a large, port-wine-colored birthmark across her face; as "everyone" knows in the setting, people form less of an emotional attachment to ugly people and therefore care less when they die, making them perfect candidates for almost-certain-death missions.… (mere)

    Tigerman af Nick Harkaway (RobinWebster)
    RobinWebster: Tigerman and Redshirts are fun, fast-paced, quirky, high-stakes adventures. Both authors navigate ridiculous scenarios with confidence and zest, avoiding silliness through characters with believable, relatable emotions and motivations.

    A Happy Bureaucracy af M. P. Fitzgerald (PitcherBooks)
    PitcherBooks: Happy Bureaucracy 1 (a stand alone) was among the best SFF dark humor satire that I've read. It's difficult to hit just the right note with that genre but Fitzgerald did so with this novel. It is rare to find such a fun SFF stand-out. The last book of this specialty genre that I found this enjoyable was Red Shirts by Scalzi.… (mere)

Another book with a twist! I seem to be reading a lot of those these days.

This starts as funny sci-fi poking fun at campy TV shows but turns into something else entirely and ends on a surprisingly sweet note.

I liked it and reading it this weekend (soon after the movie shootings in CO) the message of living a meaningful life and being happy and expressing love for those who are most important to you hits especially hard.

The final words from Jenkins are perfect. Now i have to go find my husband and hug him. ( )

Fun little romp with an interesting philosophical question woven through it: how would you react if you found out that your life was being scripted (badly), or how would you react if you found out that you were inadvertently scripting people's lives? Add in some Star Trek in-jokes, and you have a sweet story with a chewy center. ( )
  Treebeard_404 | Jan 23, 2024 |
Amusing premise where the characters realize to their horror that they are expendable supporting characters on a bad sci-fi show...then unite to try to do something about it. Starts off strong but the joke wears thin after awhile, and it gets too metafictional. The last few chapters have a completely different tone than the light humor of the rest of the book; I didn't like them in my first read, but found them to be rather moving on a re-read. ( )

Starts off hilarious, and then morphs into a serious existential philosophy of life. Still pondering.
Time to revisit Borges. ( )

Very funny and entertaining. It's probably nicer if you have watched a few star trek eposides, but I think it's still entertaining if you haven't. ( )

Redshirts is dedicated to the following:

To Wil Wheaton, whom I heart with all the hearty heartiness a heart can heart;

To Mykal Burns, my friend since the TRS-80 days at the Glendora Public Library;

And to Joe Mallozzi and Brad Wright, who took me to space with them.

From the top of the large boulder he sat on, Ensign Tom Davis looked across the expanse of the cave toward Captain Lucius Abernathy, Science Officer Q'eeng and Chief Engineer Paul West perched on a second, larger boulder, and thought, Well, this sucks.

"Someone who knows that no matter what, you don't deal upward on the chain of command," Dahl said. The crewman grinned.
"I don't think luck had much to do with it."
"That's it? 'The Box'?" Dahl said.

"If it makes you feel better to think it's an experimental quantum-based computer with advanced inductive artificial intelligence capacity, whose design origins comes to us from an advanced but extinct race of warrior-engineers, then you can think about it that way," Collins said.

"Is that actually what it is?" Dahl asked.

"Sure," Collins said . . .
“In other words, crew deaths are a feature, not a bug,” Cassaway said, dryly.
