Antimatter Blues by Edward Ashton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This sequel to Mickey7 is, and continues to be, a proper continuation of old-school adventure SF, the kind that carries itself on an underlying humorous premise and keeps a light tone even when the subject material might get a little dark.
I think of Frederick Brown and Clifford Simak and even a good deal of Alan Dean Foster. If so, Edward Ashton is definitely a godson of these classics.
That being said, it's light, fluffy fun. Cloning isn't so much the primary focus in this sequel, but meeting and killing a bunch of local aliens definitely is.
A solid average SF. Nothing deep, but consistently good.
