Robin Sloan’s 2012 novel, Mr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, was as strong a debut as you could ask for, an instant geek classic of bibliophilia, magic and technology; now, with today’s release of Sourdough, Sloan returns to the alienated, quirkily funny and brilliant lives of technology workers, in a tale of food, the flesh, novelty-seeking, ancient tradition, and immortal colony-organisms.

Sounds sweet.

I’d think it would more likely be a bit sour =).

Doh!

Your introductory summary seems to go through enough plot for most regular books. If the rest of it is similarly packed it sounds like a hoot!
