Wait, is that Blindsight? Amazing book.

It's ctulhu mythos. But yes, Blindsight is excellent. Did you read the sequel?

I have just finished both books in Peter Watts Firefall series.

I loved them. It was interesting that neither book was "about" the events unfolding and rather seemed to be an examination of consciousness and intelligence (human and otherwise).

I loved Blindsight except for some biochemical blunders, but Echopraxia really blew my socks off, even though I had to read the AMA to understand what the fuck was going on. Really sick book.

Honestly I've read the AMA, re-read multiple parts of the books many times, and researched some of the subject matter on my own time, and I still don't totally get what's going on in Echopraxia. I mean I get the jist but that book is just jam-packed with smart and crazy sci-fi ideas (possibly too many of them). Still one of my favorites.

I really hope PW gets around to a third book. I want more of those aliens.

Watts for Scifi and Bakker for Fantasy are my current two favorite authors!
Hard to read anything from anyone else these days.
