I thought I'd start a catch-all for one of my favorite genres--science fiction. Here is a non-spoilered recap of my latest, which I really enjoyed. Noumenon by Marina J. Lostetter was the tale of a large group of people tasked with investigating a space anomaly, then return and report. Given the distance from earth to the anomaly, the group was committed to a multi-generational space trip. The details of how this was accomplished, what happened along the journey, and especially what happened on the return (and by now I am hard to surprise!), was well done. Also discusses the term "noumenon" for people who enjoy learning new terms. The technical talk was kept to a minimum. There is a follow-up novel called Noumenon Infinity, which I am currently too cheap to buy, but maybe next payday. The first novel can stand on its own without being too aggravatingly cliffhangerish. A couple of other books this reminded me of are: Seveneves by Neal Stephenson Foundation (the whole series) by Issac Asimov
