The latest novel from the prolific and hugely talented Charles Stross is his riff on the online gaming world - and is written in the second person, a difficult feat that Stross pulls off with almost nonchalant ease. Halting State will go on to feature on many of this years best books lists, I am sure. Previously published in the US by Tor, this UK edition is a large format trade paperback issued by Orbit.
"As keeling observant of our emergent society as it is of our emergent technologies, Halting State is one extremely smart species of fun." -- William Gibson.
