The Talos Principle is coming

As the release date of The Talos Principle approaches, I’ll be posting reviews and other links of interest here. I am, however, also preparing the release of A Postcard From Afthonia, which is ready and just being set up at Humble, and The Council of Crows, which I’d love to release before Christmas (but I’m not sure I can). I’m also working on a post about the writing of Talos and another one about Ithaka of the Clouds. Loads of stuff happening right now!

Unfortunately I’ve spent the last few weeks utterly and completely inundated with terrifying tax and healthcare paperwork that I can’t safely ignore, so I’m way behind.

Still – at least people seem to be enjoying Talos, which makes me very happy.

Talos has managed to present a narrative that makes us think, and not only think, but question ourselves. It doesn’t do it in a terribly pretentious way, either, not like we might expect from philosophy. We’re presented with a compelling version of reality that begs us to question our own, and Talos tells it with sci-fi aplomb.

Isn’t that cool?
