Ministry of Space

Finally got hold of Ministry of Space by Warren Ellis. in um, trade paperback (is that the right term) from amazon.


Short. Doesn't use the setting to tell stories in, the setting is the story. Absolutely gorgeous artwook. When I saw the name of the rocket I said "uh-oh".

Its interesting that this came out originally a few months after we finalised the scenario on the Cryosphere to be a more modern version of this (the Cryosphere timeline holds that scientists from the University from Southampton invent hyperdrive in CURRENT_YEAR$+1, and then HMG takes over much of the galaxy in no short order.)

Want more! Oh well.
