4.0 out of 5 stars My second Kindle, 28 Nov 2010
My first one was stolen and my memory is not working well so I may have the facts wrong. IIRC the first one was white and I preferred it to the new model because it had bigger page turning buttons and was more ergonomic to use. I see the new model has better contrast but that is not important for me.
I love my Kindle and couldn't do without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Iggy song, 27 April 2010

I can't seem to speak the language.

This is from his time in Berlin with Bowie. David wanted to be Iggy but could only be Ziggy. See The Velvet Goldmine.

The proto punk Iggy Pop must have been fantastic live but this is the song I listen to at home.

Charles Stross is a great hard SF writer obsessed with the coming singularity [ Vernor Vinge ]
This book is set in a future where there are no humans just robots. The heroine is a female sex robot with no men to serve.
I find it hard to care about an adventure where all the humans are extinct.
I recommend his short story collection Toast and have bought Singularity Sky.
I read The Atrocity Archives but I should have been warned by the title: its very nasty horror. I was hoping for something like J G Ballard's Atrocity Exhibition but I got a nastier treatment of Lovecraftian Nazi torture and Cthulu Mythos. Let Yog Sothos lie.
