Saturn Returns (Astropolis)

Saturn Returns  - Sean Williams Great big space opera. Starts off with a character put back together from his constituent atoms (and put together as a woman, the rebuilders flipped a coin and made him female, he doesn't mind that much but goes back to male). First of a three book series (with an interstitial novella from MonkeyBrain books to look forward to as well, yay!) which are set 870,000 years or so from now. I tend to think that anything that goes on then will be pretty incomprehensible to us now but Williams has real fun with it: one of the characters only speaks in Gary Numan lyrics. Why? Because over a long life (870,000 years . . .) people do lots of weird things. Ha!
