Review quote

Brilliantly disturbing and funny at the same time

Charles Stross owns this field, and his vast, cool intellect has launched yet another mad, sly entertainment that will strangle the hell out of anything else on offer right now

Stross at the top of his game - which is to say, few do it better

Alternately chilling and hilarious

Ferociously enjoyable
