I had wanted to come up with some topics and questions regarding this month's discussion, but alas, my boss is actually making me work today! So, without further delay, what did y'all think of Hominids? I was quite dubious, despite the fact that I love anthropological SF, because I thought a parallel universe involving Neanderthals would be hokey. I was pleasantly surprised. I liked it so much that I finished it one day and immediately followed it with Humans. I don't know enough about quantum physics to posit whether or not the premise of opening an alternate universe with a quantum computer is even possible, but I was willing to buy it for the sake of the novel.
