The Machine’s Child

Kage Baker’s Company novels finally begin to move towards closure in The Machine’s Child. Okay, so given Kage Baker’s writing style, that characterisation is a bit rosy! But characters and plot lines of several of the previous books and short stories do begin to come together here, and the time periods covered edge closer and closer to 2355. Oh, and there’s a big fat cliffhanger, don’t you know.
