Here's a couple of new reviews of The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red:

This one isn't new but I missed it when it first came out: James Nicoll I’m Not Just One of Your Many Toys

What keeps this from being an unrelentingly grim tale of slavery and dismemberment is Murderbot itself. Murderbot might note that rending the puny humans limb from limb is well within its operational parameters, but this is a purely theoretical observation about performance capabilities. Murderbot has no desire to have its personal body count go any higher. Despite the name it calls itself, Murderbot is not very murder-ish at all. It’s really quite pleasant, if you get to know it.

And this one is a video review on a YouTube show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfIqIybTpGs&feature=youtu.be&t=4m42s

In other news, I'm going to try to post more, or to get back to posting more like I used to. It just feels like I've been horrendously busy, and low-key depressed, forever, and I feel like I haven't had much energy for anything outside work. I've had some pain in my hands again, though not nearly as bad as at the beginning of the year when I had to get the shots with the giant needles. I'm nearly done with Murderbot 3: Electric Boogaloo (that's not what it's called) and I did manage to get my backyard mostly into shape this year. Tasha the cat has been a bit sick for the past two days, but she did eat some tuna and dry food, and some bodily functions have resumed, so that's good.

And today I did get my author copies of All Systems Red today, so that was awesome.

I'm really looking forward to this book. The excerpt you posted was great.
