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 no doubt 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 the mass market 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.
