This novel is really setting things up for the future, showing how Bob is progressing with his career in the Laundry and filling in some mysteries about Mo's Violin and about some of the other people around. There are going to be ramifications of what happened here and the cultists haven't gone away, this battle has been won but the war continues.
This was a lot of setup for the future of the series and I'm curious where things are going to go. It's very much a bridging novel and it's really setting up a lot of things that will play out in the next few titles, I hope.… (mais)

Part of the Laundry stories and included with the sample for the Hugos with a sample of The Atrocity Archives.
A UK government department who investigate the occult discover that someone is trying to weaponise for their own purposes a weapon they hid in CCTV cameras, as if you needed new nightmares about the surveillance state. Bob investigates a cow that burns and discovers some very dangerous politics.

Double-oh-geek in a Lovecraftian present day sacred service, what's not to like? Stross has all the right ingredients for greatness BOFH meets Cthulhu. Somehow the story blows out of proportion way to early and shifts gear in a way that makes me feel that it should have been 2 or 3 short stories instead. Deeply disappointed (or had my hopes to high) moving on to the Jennifer Morgue hoping the grand story and plot lines have matured.

The first chapter of this is called "Lobsters", and I'm reminded that I once had a restaurant meal of some smaller member of the family, drenched in a delicious butter sauce, but so much work to extract from their shells that I wasn't convinced I ended up consuming more calories than I'd expended in the process.

I tend to have the same experience any time I try to read cyberpunk / singularity style stories. There's so much novel technology (and anti-capitalism ideology) crammed into every sentence it's an assault on my mental senses, and it makes it a slog when actually I just want to... read a story. But these aren't really about the story (which, at least in the first chapter, is fairly slim) so much as the journey along the way. Really I need to accept that this sub-genre is never going to click with me.… (mais)
