Aliens among us The Humans'

Sci-fi tale offers outsider's take on humanity

The best science fiction acts as a sort of funhouse mirror, reflecting aspects of our existence back at us in ways that, while twisted, remain recognizable. The genre provides a certain degree of freedom when it comes to exploring ideas; it offers us a removed glimpse at ourselves.

Author Matt Haig has given us one such glimpse with his latest novel 'The Humans' (Simon & Schuster, $25).

A future trip on the Great North Road'

Science fiction epic offers snapshot of humanity's future

The science fiction epic has become an increasingly rare thing. The genre has become a world of multi-book storylines and ongoing series to its ultimate benefit, truth be told.

An alternate Armageddon Slow Apocalypse'

Novel offers a gradual end of the world

When we think about the end of the world, we tend to think of it happening in a single moment. One minute here, next minute gone. But what if it wasn't like that? What if society held together long enough for us to actually bear witness to each phase of its ultimate deterioration?

We might see the world of Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author John Varley's 'Slow Apocalypse' (ACE, $25.95). It's a story about what might happen if the world as we know it ended not in one giant flash of Armageddon, but piece by piece.
