Willis Group Holdings can’t catch a break. In 2009, after spending millions of dollars, the iconic Sears Tower in Chicago was renamed Willis Tower. But in the far, far, far future of The Perihelix, the building is back to being known as The Sears Tower. That’s history for you, folks! (Ha ha ha.)

The book is mostly heavy science fiction. Plenty of details for the sci-fi “geek” reader. Then there’s a bit of fantasy mixed in. A sword, knights, a dragon– fantasy. It is listed as Books › Science Fiction & Fantasy › Fantasy. However, it felt much more like science fiction to me. (See the genre: Speculative Fiction)

It was an interesting story with some unusual characters.

And now a song from the band Cake is stuck in my head.

I don’t wanna go to Sunset Strip
I don’t wanna feel the emptiness
Old marquees with stupid band names
I don’t wanna go to Sunset Strip

  1. Ah, Cake. Haven’t listened to them in a while, but I like quite a few of their songs. It’s great that you already have a review up too.

  2. I’m surprised it’s listed as spec fiction and fantasy. I tagged it science fiction and space opera!

    Thanks for the review, much appreciated.

    I’m forever singing the theme to ‘Seventy-seven, Sunset Strip’, but then I’m older than you! 🙂
