SalvagedSalvaged by Madeleine Roux

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Rosalyn works as a salvager, a space janitor cleaning up ships that have run into problems on expeditions. She's taken the job as an escape from several bad situations, but soon runs into a worse one. The Brigantine, a ship with no life signs, reports life signs when the crew arrives and a horrifying fate has taken the crew and, if it escapes, the whole of humankind. A well-paced horror adventure story in space with some good twists.

[I received an advanced e-galley through Netgalley. The book is due to be published August 15, 2019.]

A fun collection of comics that will appeal to people who prefer reading to most other activities, created by bookstore The Wild Detectives. Ben Fountain writes a fun, brief introduction.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Norwegian explorer who walked to the South Pole alone writes about one of the most basic human activities. A beautiful little philosophical book, mixed with personal anecdotes and reflections.
