I don’t really care if you read the above-linked post, although it is interesting and amusing. I found it via John Scalzi’s blog. The important part of this post is that Stross is a cool author. As is Scalzi. I don’t remember how I first came across Stross' novel Accelerando, which he had shared online. I imagine I found it through BoingBoing. But I read it, and enjoyed it, and kept reading his stuff. I think Iron Sunrise is my favorite thus far.
I really should read more. It makes me want to write, which is both good and bad. It’s good because I like writing, but it’s bad because I can never seem to keep at it long enough to finish anything, so it’s frustrating. Maybe I’ll get a chance to hit the library this weekend.
