There’s been something missing from my life lately. 

Fiction. 

My reading has been sporadic and mostly non-fiction over the last couple of months. 

My wife and I haven’t even made time for television or movies. 

And I can feel that something is off. 

Maybe we need regular doses of story and mental escape. Too much reality (and online news and social media especially) dulls the imagination. All work and no play is not a good recipe for a creative mind. 

Regular doses of fiction stoke the imagination and spark more wonder and delight. 

So,  after seeing it mentioned again by Jason Snell, I’m giving this well-reviewed science fiction series a go.
