Another Charlie Huston home run
January 18, 2010
Charlie Huston, along with Richard Morgan, is the hottest thing going in sci-fi/fantasy/noir genre today. From his Hank Thompson (noir) to Joe Pitt (fantasy noir) to Mystic Arts to Sleepless, Charlie Huston has, along with the greatest book titles known to man, an incredible sense of pacing, dialogue and character development.
Sleepless does not disappoint in any of the above facets (how does one weave a story of chronic insomnia, the collapse of society, policing, online gaming and the cost of loss, anyway), and it has the additonal juicy extra of one of the most fascinating characters I've come across in quite some time - Jasper. My highest recommendation.
