Ya ha ha hooooeeyyyyyyyy........

I've finished reading Accelerando, by Charles Stross. Whew, what a ride! - it's amazing what happens if you keep your foot on the accelerator... It's best read in short bits (and in fact originally appeared as a string of short stories) to give things time to assimilate. I must go read some of this author's other works. Though not right now since I've got four more Hugo nominees to read PLUS a new Terry Pratchett which will probably muscle itself into the front of the line when I get off the computer. I'm saving the George R. R. Martin for last since apparently it's book four in a fantasy series and rather a doorstop in size. Next will probably be Spin by Robert Charles Wilson.

Singularity Sky is another good one by Strauss.

Definitely leave the Martin for last. Since I've been reading them since the beginning, I know the (really complex, very political and psychological) story. You may have a bit more difficulty. Plus, this is a series with a cast of freaking thousands. I wouldn't want to jump in into book 4. But if you do, I will be very curious to see how you like it.

Oops, thanks! Checking back I see I made the original error in an earlier post. Both have now been corrected.
