Why can't Stross finish a book?
on 6 August 2013
Once again Stross creates an interesting premise, but is unable to satisfactorily conclude.
This is the case with iron sunrise, the whole laundry series. We get to about 95% of the way through and then it is finished in a 1, 2, 3, often a deus ex machina.
I like Stross' work, but like Iain Banks, I think his work rate is undermining the quality control. I'd like to see him get back to the heights of Glasshouse and Accelerando.
Adequate, but I should have waited until it came out in paper-back.
