I ran across a link to Charlie Stross’s Scratch Monkey in ebook form on Friday…had to d/l it to my Nokia straightaway. It’s a very early novel of Charlie’s (which you can tell in certain spots) but overall, it’s brilliant. I see bits and pieces of later characters here and there; I always enjoy exploring an author’s work as it evolves over time. Exactly my type of fiction, too…I’m loving it. If you like the kind of wacky sci-fi I do, you’ll love it too. Thanks for sharing, Charlie!
