I was lucky enough to receive a free, advance copy of this book from the author.

Daniel writes within the genres of sci-fi, cyberpunk, and dystopian fiction so, on one hand, this is my home. As a lover of both Blade Runners, Mad Max, The Matrix, I have at least one foot planted firmly in this camp. But look on my bookshelves, and you’ll see nothing like that. I watch sci-fi - I watch a lot of it - but I don’t really read it. And, although he didn’t change my view that traditional sci-fi is not n

Just finished this book and initial impressions follow:

It's hackers vs the man. Some throw back to early internet days. Fun book, lots of action and some pretty cool ideas about the possibilities of humans, machines, and virtual reality.
Things I liked: biochips and the ability to regulate our brain and body responses, the blurring of lines between reality & virtual reality , man & machine, sane & insane- what is real, anyway?, visiting characters from previous books, seeing them interact with e

If you’re a fan of Verastiqui’s previous works then you absolutely won’t be disappointed, yet new readers will still find it exciting and cyberpunk-ily fresh.

The interweaving non-linear story line, R-rated risqué rowdiness (although much more toned down in this book), dialogue bouncing between clever and snarky, and futuristic technology hybridized with 90s nostalgia (e.g. a Blockbuster Video on one page to a virtual reality orgy on the next) - all make for an emotionally riveting read.

A very fitting middle chapter of the Vinestead Anthology

I thought Brigham was Verastiqui's best paced book thus far and I felt that the action from chapter-to-chapter made me want to ignore the rest of the world and keep reading. Story progression held plenty of turns to keep the reader guessing, especially when combined with the knowledge from the rest of the series.

As a fan of the genre, there was enough tech to keep my cyber-nerd satiated while leaving enough room for the characters.
