    Children of Time (Adrian Tchaikovsky, 2015)
    This is the kind of Sci-Fi I love. Really out there in terms of concepts. Some brain-stretching ideas, but still enough character development that you care about the people (and such) involved rather than just the ideas.

    Borderless (Eliot Peper, 2018)
    Second in the Analog techno-thriller series. In a not too distant future, ultra-hackers manipulate the world to stop the world from being manipulated. 

    Or something like that.

    World of Trouble (Ben H Winters, 2014)
    Last book of the “Detective at the end of the world” series “The Last Policeman”. The planet will only exist for another two weeks, but there are mysteries that need to be resolved before we reach the end.

    Lovely. Wraps the series up beautifully.
