This week’s Mind Meld on interstellar travel gave me a hankering for some good old space based SF, as near to space opera as I can get. It just so happens that Michael Flynn was one of the respondents and the cover to his In The Lion’s Mouth caught my eye. I read The January Dance awhile ago and I remember enjoying quite a bit, much more than John did, but I never saw the second book come out and so forgot about it.
As I was digging through my book shelf for The January Dancer I ran across S. Andrew Swann’s Prophets: Apotheosis Book One. I remember really liking this one (John did, too) and so a quandary presented itself. Which to read? Luckily both series are now at three books each so there’s a lot of Space Opera goodness I can read back to back (to back). I’m going to read both series, probably one after the other, but I’m throwing it open to you, the SF Signal reader, which one should I read first?
If you’ve read either or both, leave a comment and tell me your thoughts about these books!
