If SF bores you, i don't blame you- it's either HeroMan saves the day space operas or tedious puppet characters dutifully illustrating semi-scientific theories, often ending in woodenly sententious soliloquies [David Brin, Benford, etc. etc. etc.].
Swannick is a writer- the tail of his theorizing doesn't wag the dog of his stories, he uses science-fiction/fantasy tropes that seem natural while you're reading and don't give you a hangover in the morning [Will you still respect in me in the morning if i suspend my disbelief now?].
I haven't had so much fun reading science-fiction since Cordwainer Smith, damn near anything by Charles Anton Wilson, or that Borgesian alien books story by Ken Liu.
