THE RAPTURE OF THE NERDS
Sci-fi powerhouses Doctorow and Stross revisit two novellas and add a third to create a warped roller-coaster ride of a novel that easily follows in (and often obliterates) the footsteps of Gibson and Sterling. While this novel is likely not for the casual SF reader, it will pull the hardcore fanbase right in. Go in expecting anything and you’ll be pleased. It’s often hard to tell up from down in this place, and that’s part of the point.
