The Godwhale

Earlier today, I was reminded in conversation about The Godwhale by TJ Bass. In my memory it was an excellent novel, and my memory is fairly good.

Far too good, actually. By the time I got around to checking to see if I could take an ebook from Amazon, it was already too late. I remember pretty much every scene, the plot, the key events, the culmination and the payoff.

The Godwhale is an excellent book. One of those rare perfect works that could not be improved by any change whatsoever. Regardless of how you feel about SF, go find a copy and read it. You will not be disappointed.
