Alastair Reynolds (official site and blog) remains one of my favorite authors and it was a pleasure to read another work this year - Blue Earth Remembered. Blue Earth Remembered is set in our solar system a century+ in the future and, it what seems like a departure from what I have been reading lately, is largely a shiny/good future with environmental problems repaired, violence largely eliminated and fantastic technology. Of course there is conflict too - the story revolves around a family mystery that takes the characters adventuring (and creating conflict) across the solar system until the big reveal at the end. There are other books planned in the Poseidon's Children series, Blue Earth Remembered is a great start!
