10/23/2012 7:00 pm
Fun and fantasy are in store here tonight as highly acclaimed novelist (Little Brother, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom) and blogger/editor (Boing Boing) Cory Doctorow is here with a new science fiction novel he and Charles Stross have collaborated on, The Rapture of the Nerds: A tale of the singularity, posthumanity, and awkward social situations (Tor). "This collaboration between two renowned sf authors exemplifies what is best in post-cyberpunk fiction, in all of its barely controlled chaos. Huw, a human throwback in a mostly post-human world, wakes up hungover in a friend's bathtub with a new roaming biohazard tattoo ...The plot tangles exponentially from there, involving frequent gender reassignments, a crash landing in the Neverglades, reality show judges, fundamentalist post-Rapture Americans, and genies who are wizards at financial trading ... Consider this adventure of multiple dimensions a backdoor into a post-technological singularity world, which will appeal to Doctorow and Stross's many fans." - Cathy Lantz, Library Journal.
