How did I not notice Kevin Bragg's "Transilience" for this long? There are so many wonderful books hiding out in the dark corners of inkshares, and this one is among the site's most wonderful. From the very first handful of pages, it's clear that the author's sci-fi vision of this unique noir story will be enthralling. Bragg's descriptions are expertly crafted, whether it's the walls of a bar on Mars, or the woman that brings the proposition to the story's hard-boiled protagonist, the brilliant writing in "Transilience" immerses you completely in its narrative. I'm at this story's mercy, yet gladly along for the ride.
