I just finished Charles Stross’ Accelerando, a marvelous
read that I snagged as a CC-licensed ebook from his website. I was
already a fan of his from other works, but I had somehow missed this
— thank goodness Vernor Vinge mentioned (and recommended) it in his
address at Accelerating Change 2005.
If you like cyberpunk / singularity / futureshock-style science
fiction, I cannot recommend Accelerando highly enough. It is
amazing. I’ll be buying at least two copies; one for me, one to give
away this holiday season.
