Insomniac musings about fiction 

Reading Dune and finding something interesting about storytelling. In books like The Expanse series, you don't know everything about the universe but neither do the characters you follow. So you discover it together. It's a really easy and pleasant read all the way through. In Dune, the characters all know a lot more than you do as a reader. It feels like you're eavesdropping on them without context, even though you can read their thoughts.

Insomniac musings about fiction 

@aeki C. J. Cherryh has a particular style for this - she writes in third person but really only what the characters notice/are thinking - so a character who has lived their life in space doesn't think too much about what space stations look like - they look like stations! - and you instead get descriptions of whether this one looks prosperous, or dangerous, or... I quite like it.

Chaser: “…an editor who read the book in 2011 turned it down on the grounds that the villain, a megalomaniacal and corrupt U.S. president, was too awful to be believed.”

I hope that editor sent Abrams an apology.
