Full review on my podcast: SFBRP #153.

Also, do not read the blurb for the novel here on Goodreads. It gives away the entire plot, the conspiracy, the cool technology, and most of the rest! All the way up to the last action scene, which was my least favourite part of the novel.

Tamahome Did you send Tobias a copy of Shrunk & White?

Ted Good show. I'm enjoying the rant at the end. I had a couple of thoughts on some of the terms you talked about from the book, like the wire-frame building? I've heard wire-frame used as a term in computer graphics, but not for actual construction. Is he confusing that, or is this some new building technology he's imagined. Also, the use of stagger: I've heard that as a term in RPG-style computer games, as in a mace can stagger an enemy, knocking him back from you and reducing the damage he's doing with his attack. I wonder if Buckell is confusing computer terms with real-life action terms, or is this a style he's using?

Isabel (kittiwake) The Kindle book version has an about the book section just after the contents list, which also gives away things you don't find out until at least half way through the book. Unbelievable!
