Robert J. Sawyer completely rocks as a science fiction author.

Patrick, around Christmastime, in response to a phone conversation about the nature of spirituality and religion and God, had shipped out his copy of Calculating God, which I read and was utterly amazed. I hold the belief that science and religion are not incompatable, and that book gave me a lot to think about.

So, the other day, I picked up Factoring Humanity. And *wow*. It's given me more to think about and try to piece into my belief system. So yeah, it was definitely worth the three hours that I read it in, and it's a completely amazing and awesome book. Sawyer really knows how to write a good yarn.

And yes, Patrick, I'm returning the favour, and this book is getting shipped to Halifax as soon as I get a chance to do so. You need to read it, it'll fit right in line with some things we've talked about.

And so now I will try to shut down my awed and amazed brain long enough to get some sleep. Because I am *really* off phase now.
