The review of Bioshock is almost done. I need to do some tweaking and make sure it all sounds good.
In the meanwhile, I recommend the works of Michael Flynn. He collaborated with Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven on Fallen Angels, which you can read for free here. He also wrote a book called Eifelheim, which is about a 14th century priest who encounters a crashed alien spaceship. The best part of the book is that the priest studied a great deal of the natural science of the day, so he is well suited for such an encounter. I intend to get around to this book soon, because it should be good, and because it has lots of good philosophy in it.
