Gideon the Ninth was good, but not quite my kind of thing – the first third (or so) felt very muddled and I was wondering why everybody seemed to love this book so much. It got better, but the world it played in never felt quite solid to me, and I'd ...more

I (28M) created a deepfake girlfriend and now my parents thin... by Fonda Lee
Rate this book
Clear rating
About as good as the title suggests (and about as much content, too). Got the tone of voice right, more or less, though catering to the wider crowd/immersion break with the user names. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/61...

Charles Stross
“You win some, you lose some. And when you lose, you have to pull yourself together and go back for more. Otherwise, the other side wins by default.”
Charles Stross, The Apocalypse Codex

Neal Stephenson
“Any number that can be created by fetishistically multiplying 2s by each other, and subtracting the occasional 1, will be instantly recognizable to a hacker.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

“Thus he who would enter the profession of diplomacy must examine himself to see whether he was born with the qualities necessary for success. These qualities are an observant mind, a spirit of application which refuses to be distracted by pleasures or frivolous amusements, a sound judgement which takes the measure of things as they are, and which goes straight to its goal by the shortest and most natural paths without wandering into useless refinements and subtleties which as a rule only succeed in repelling those with whom one is dealing. The negotiator must further possess that penetration which enables him to discover the thoughts of men and to know by the least movement of their countenances what passions are stirring within, for such movements are often betrayed even by the most practised negotiator.”
François de Callières, On the Manner of Negotiating with Princes

Neal Stephenson
“Questions about Ethics so perplexing that even a Jesuit couldn't respond without committing a venial sin.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

Charles Stross
“I've suffered for what I know, so I'm not going to let you off the hook with a simple one-liner. I think you deserve a detailed explanation.”
Charles Stross, The Atrocity Archives
