Charlie gets wierd...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Revolution Trade (Merchant Princes Omnibus) (Paperback)
This is the last of the 'Merchant Princes' books and it gets very odd indeed.
As far as I can tell Mr Stross found himself in a story he can't quickly end in a reasonable way, so he just gets the United States to carpet bomb it with nuclear bombs and starts over in a different universe...
He also l;eaves loose ends all over the place.
If you've read the first two you might as well read this one because it's a sort of ending, and he leaves the way open for another sequel somewhere down stream, but it's unsatisfying.
