Screw this pseudo-rigorous science fiction. I need more sensawunda in my life. I need a book with space battles! And people who can manipulate probability with their minds. And hundred-kilometer-long starships. And Galactic Trading Companies, and telepathic Space Leviathans. And frogboygirls in space.
And cat slaves.*
Hmm. All that, and a caper novel too.
Yeah, I can do that.
