I laughed, I scratched my head, then laughed some more.

Review of Improbables: a satire about very large numbers by Steve Marshall

Improbables by Steve M

Here’s a great science fiction novel

from an excellent writer. He kept the suspense building throughout the book; made the settings and activities complex, but familiar; and made the central characters likable and funny. The technology and social structures were futuristic, but entirely believable.

I loved it. Get it and read it, at once!

Warning: a bit of a spoiler ahead.

Have you ever known anyone

who always has incredibly good luck? They may be an Improbable. Of course, without doing the math, you could never know for sure. But, the fact that their toast, when dropped, always falls butter side up means that they could be a valuable tool for winning an intergalactic war.
