Anyone have any idea if he had anyone looking over his shoulder on amped? Look I apologize? I don't want to dog the guy by an implant you can't switch off? Obvious crazy for hire? Special snowflake guy with super special one of a kind mcguffin wetware?
The problem is there are some genuinely interesting bits in there but for me it felt like too little connected with too much that punched me out of immersion.
Having said that I will probably give it a skim just in case it's a case of his work improving. From what I've seen of the sample I doubt it, but I have read the inheritance cycle twilight and a bunch of trash romance novels just on the off chance its hype backlash.
Even though I don't especially like the guy's fiction it isn't the worst out there by a long shot.
