How can you plug an author without making it sound like an advertisement? I wish I knew better. But I'm really excited about a particular, relatively unknown author, and I wanted to get the word out about her stuff. Her name is Syne Mitchell, and she has written four books: Murphy's Gambit, Technogenesis, The Changeling Plague, and End in Fire. What she writes is the hard SF stuff that I'm such a great fan of, but she writes it with a lot more soul than most hard SF authors. SF writers have often been accused of writing plot at the expense of character. But, while Syne writes incredibly suspenseful plots full of non-stop action, she also writes amazing characters. These are not the simplistic, unidimensional characters so common to SF. She writes morally ambiguous characters with deep internal struggles.

So, after my recent excitement about her two most recent books, I just wanted to get the word out about this fine author. I don't really recommend Technogenesis, but the other three are well worth a read.
