Jordan Mason of the planet Ventus comes from a long line of stoneworkers, and he has a clear understanding of his place in his world.via Ventus —

Spending most of my time reading scientific / work related stuff there’s no much time to read fiction. One of my 2011 challenges is to read more non-science books and January started with this oldie (by modern standards) Ventus by Karl Schroeder. The good thing about it is that it is free as an e-book that you can download from the author website. If you like sci-fi, fantasy, robots, nanotechnology and a good fight, this might be a good read for you.
