Big, Dumb, but Eminently Loveable

Science fiction loves its big, dumb objects.  Although almost always macguffins, the best are mysterious, creepy and mind-blowingly awesome.  They epitomise SF’s sensawunda at its best and I love them.  So, to celebrate them, below the fold, in no particular order, are some of my favourite.  Where I’ve read and reviewed books that refer to some of these objects, I’ve linked to my review on GoodReads.

Warning: there may be some spoilers ahead.

Happy New Year

Happy new year to everyone! My annual retrospective is now up, as usual, on my website.

Whether for sadness or joy
The old year comes to an end
The slate wiped clean.
May the new one bring you
More happiness than sorrow.

Happy New Year.
