New review: Greg Egan’s Orthogonal series

// 25 October 2012

Cover of The Clockwork Rocket by Greg Egan.jpg I’ve long been a fan of Australian science fiction author Greg Egan, whose work is pretty much guaranteed to do your head in. (I mean that in the nicest possible way.) His writing has always included radical approaches to gender and sexuality – but none of his previous novels has addressed sexual politics or a liberatory struggle for reproductive autonomy as directly as those in the Orthogonal series. The results of his latest efforts are characteristically fascinating. I’ve reviewed the first two books in the trilogy for the F Word.

Egan is a marvellous author, although I’ve only got round to actually reading one book – Diaspora, I would recommend his work to anyone.
