Neuromancer meets Bill Gates meets Linux,
This review is from: Infoquake: v. 1: The Jump 225 Trilogy (Paperback)
Infoquake will win an award this year, it must because Edelman has created a very plausible future, where holographic internets, politics, programming and marketing all meet at the start of a brilliant and exciting trilogy. I'm really looking forward to the next installment. Creating a new take on future tech isn't easy after Neal Stephenson and especially William Gibson. Only a few brilliant authors manage this plausibly, Charles Stross in Accelerando, Cory Doctorow in I, Robot and I, Rowboat and Peter F Hamilton in The Reality Dysfunction and the following novels in that series. Edelman succeeds in keeping the reader from reality in that going to work or eating are put aside so you can turn just one more page. In this regard it's probably good holiday reading hehe.
