February Books 1) Cyber Circus, by Kim Lakin-Smith

First of the BSFA nominees for me to read. Lots of intense description of the Circus inmates and their enemies, and some very sensual sex, but I found it quite difficult to follow what was actually going on. I actually found Black Sunday, the companion novella set in Dustbowl Texas, much more approachable and liked it more. I will certainly look out for more from Lakin-Smith in future, though I will be surprised if I rank this top of my BSFA ballot.
