Review of Accelerando

"Accelerando" by Charles Stross is a well-written adventure in the post-singularity Solar System. The book spans three generations of the Macx family, in a future that is reminiscent of Stephenson's "Snow Crash." Moving from a near-now with mobile computing and a Mafia-run RIAA the book speeds into outer and virtual space at breakneck speed; the technology and the plot never stagnate. The characters are as over the top as the rest of the book, making it a very fun read.

"Accelerando" is available online and in stores, and there is a free copy on the authors website.
