While I just got a main 2012 novel - The Sacrifice Game - by Brian D'Amato, I was a little tired to start seriously so i read some 100 pages from The Devil's Nebula by Eric Brown which so far is a generic fast and fun action adventure sf in a space opera context and i am enjoying it as such. However if I get more energy I will definitely start the D'Amato novel as that is in a different class (at least as expectations go of course)
