The Rapture of the Nerds by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross (Tor Books) The Most Thrilling Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in September!
Stross and Doctorow put together a version of life after the Singularity that’s notably different than anything either of them has written before. The book is made up of three linked novellas: the previously published “Jury Service,” about a curmudgeonly luddite environmentalist named Huw, who is summoned to Libya to serve on a jury passing judgment on a weird downloaded item that’s arrived from the “transcended cloud.” And its sequel “Appeals Court,” which you can read here. And finally, a third novella, which features the uploaded ghost of Ayn Rand, among other things.
