Review of 'Bloom'

Bloom by Wil McCarthy

An incredible journey through the future of earth having been swollowed up whole by a massive “mycora” (man-made, self-replicating organisms). John Strasheim is a reporter who tags along with an expedition to plant some probes on the surface of the infected planets in a “mycora-proof” ship. But there are political agendas involved: Is the expedition all that it is supposed to be? Who is bugging their communications? What exactly is the mycora? A great page-turner with a bit of quite advanced technical stuff that was a bit tricky to get through but overall a great read.<p>Note: The author's web site is at <a href=“http://www.sff.net/people/wmccarth” target=“_top”> http://www.sff.net/people/wmccarth</a>.</p>
