  • Commented on Free ebooks! Get 'em while they're hot!
    Thanks for that. I think maybe that's why i was a bit put off by these novels in their original form but for some reason the revised editions are appealing to me a lot more. I guess i'm a lot...
  • Commented on Free ebooks! Get 'em while they're hot!
    Same here, this is the only stross series i haven't dipped into yet so perfect timing. I was going to get them from feedbooks but they're a bit pricey on there for my poor, unemployed self right now....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    1. I'll take your word for it then but i'm afraid the subject matter is too convoluted for my understanding. 2. Thanks for that vote of confidence there but i do agree with your criticisms of blog groupthink with a...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Glad to see i'm not the only one who just sees mostly meaningless word salad; they can change their username as much as they like but the bafflegarb (great word) is a dead giveaway. Can someone please tell me why...
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Huh... the only stross books that have passed me by so i suppose i should start reading the omnibus volumes: i believe those are the recommended ones for new readers of this series. I really can't start the new one...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    I remember that greasy turd fromage said something similar the day after the referendum result and all i could think was... Her name was Jo Cox! Her name was Jo Cox! Her name was Jo Cox! Her name was Jo...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Holy shit. Not quite finished it yet but chapter 15: that escalated... i hasten to say quickly seeing as it's taken until book 7 for a major incursion into whatever reality the laundry reside in but it successfully, albeit momentarily,...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    So much for celtic solidarity. Never been so thoroughly disgusted by my fellow country men/women: £4bn of funding since 2000 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-36417964). https://twitter.com/warrenellis/status/746147133779226624...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    What then happens to Wales? Have our own independence referendum and rejoin the EU with Scotland? I've been surprised by polls saying we're generally in favour of remaining despite the rise in popularity for UKIP: eating into the still strong...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Can you at least hope that Jo Cox's assassination will backfire rather badly on the Brexit crew? I can't imagine the campaigning will pick up from where it left off when the shitshow starts up again, both sides owe it...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    "I've been saying a while that when fascism comes to Britain it will be wearing a tweed jacket and a cheeky grin, holding a pint of beer in one hand and a noose in the other." This, i think, is...
  • Commented on Three Unexpectedly Good Things VR Will Probably Cause
    http://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2016/apr/27/6x9-a-virtual-experience-of-solitary-confinement Exploring empathy? I can imagine that experiencing another person's wildly different daily life could have a profound effect on your worldview/prejudices/biases... whatever you want to call it. The point is we can't possibly know where this is heading but...
  • Commented on Reminders
    Ah...yes, they now have it listed with DRM showing under the book details section - http://www.feedbooks.com/item/933405/the-annihilation-score Now you mention it i do remember you stating several times your publishers insist on DRM. Oh well, a non-searchable dead tree edition it...
  • Commented on Reminders
    Is feedbooks.com legit? I've been searching for an answer on that question for a while now and am still none the wiser. They have all of charlie's previous laundry books on there so i imagine this will pop up at...
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    Whatever happens, I think we'll be looking at voting reform sooner than later. The current system is clearly broken. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_Alternative_Vote_referendum,_2011 Tried that and the opportunity was utterly squandered. Much like the Scottish vote i suppose....
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Enacting 'Case-Nightmare-Green-Scorpion-Stare-Maginot-Blue-Stars' binding geas on one's spouse/partner is not, repeat, NOT a permissible domestic dispute resolution under ANY circumstance....
