Thanks to John Scalzi, the year 2015 started really well. I decided to continue my sci-fi kick and picked Lock In, which has been sitting in my queue for the past few months. It is an example of one of my favorite genres blends: sci-fi and murder mystery, reminiscent of Asimov's Caves of Steel. I started with a free novella, a prequel and an into to Lock In, Unlocked: An Oral History of Haden’s Syndrome, which was written as way to ease the reader into the main story. And it's a great story, well written, with just the right sprinkling of humor and cleverness throughout. It's set in the near future where in the wake of a pandemic new type of people have appeared: android bodies controlled by living human brains locked in paralyzed human bodies. Lots of potential for interesting conflicts. The book stands on its own but I have a suspicion there might be a sequel in the works based on some untied loose ends. I certainly wouldn't mind more stories set in this world. Highly recommend.
