Williams, Sean -- Saturn Returns

Picture Wright's "Golden Age" trilogy without the overwrought diction or the eventual collapse into Randsturbation. Okay, without the colossal ambition either, but it's still good fun. A guy is revived by aliens from a long-lost backup copy, and tries to figure out what happened to the galaxy in the N-thousand years he's been gone. I liked the various neural architectures and how they played into the plot. This is a strictly non-FTL setting, which is also well-worked out, as long as you buy civilizations lasting thousands of years while our heroes transmit themselves around. (This only bothered me in a few spots.)

Currently in my to-read pile. See? I meant it about the Berg.
