Stross has a great line in scarily bonkers and imaginative works, and Wireless is an opportunity for him to really go wild. "Missile Gap" is a great analysis of a world snatched into the future by unknown forces and radically reshaped. I also liked t ...more

This is a collection of short stories set in the same brilliantly realised future India as River of Gods. I'd already read "The Little Goddess", "The Djinn's Wife" and "Sanjeev and Robotwallah" in other collections and loved them, although I felt the ...more
