Last week I finished reading Alastair Reynolds' 'Slow Bullets' (Tachyon, San Francisco). The book is a space opera that plays out inside one prison ship. Dr Reynolds returns to the subjects of morality and memory. He looked at the first in 'Redemption Ark' and the second in 'Zima Blue.' Can a presumptive war criminal be redeemed by good acts? Are we defined by what we do, by our memories of what we have done, by both? The story raised these questions for me.
