We have decided to (mostly) stop posting standard reviews and instead post a weekly (or bi-weekly depending on our work load) round-up of what we are reading and what we have been reviewing. We will still include links to our full reviews but this new format will allow for a more…

When Gyre Price lied her way into this expedition, she thought she’d be mapping mineral deposits, and that her biggest problems would be cave collapses and gear malfunctions. She also thought that the fat paycheck—enough to get her off-planet and on the trail of her mother—meant she’d get a skilled surface team, monitoring her suit and environment, keeping her safe. Keeping her sane. Instead, she got Em. Em sees nothing wrong with controlling Gyre’s body with drugs…
