I love most of Charlie's work. That said, I thought Neptune's Brood was a disappointment. Sorry Charlie.


#3

Neptune's Brood marked the last book I'll ever buy from that crypto-luddite.

I doubt I'm missing much, after a certain point its all rehashing the same old tropes while the author vainly tries to recapture the spark that made them interesting.

A fitting end to a fossilized futurist.

Stross's anti-bitcoin articles sure brought out the crypto-huffing haters.


#5

I really didn't care for it either.

"I am now going to bore you to death with the political economy of Shin-Tethys"

Indeed.


#6

Not to mention bringing out the inured participants to failing sovereign states. Their zeal in defending the ongoing debasement of their currency is amusingly misplaced.
