The first novel in Hugo Award-winning author Charles Stross's witty Laundry Files series.
Bob Howard is a low-level techie working for a super-secret government agency. While his colleagues are out saving the world, Bob's under a desk restoring lost data. His world was dull and safe - but then he went and got Noticed.
Now, Bob is up to his neck in spycraft, parallel universes, dimension-hopping terrorists, monstrous elder gods and the end of the world. Only one thing is certain: it will take more than a full system reboot to sort this mess out . . .

After accelerando... It's tough
First off I'm writing this review from an iPad. So it may come across terse and truncated. Please be kind.
This is a fun if not dated series. I like the combo of witchcraft and computers. And the third Reich seems a bit cliched. But I'm not a big hitler-history person.
So what's my point? Accelerando; it's like he wrote his "wind up bird chronicle" for sci-fi. All novels before and after are precursors. I'm not suggesting he quit writing, but it's hard to follow the insanity and pure pleasure of accelerando. So to mr. Stross, I say, keep at it. Because I'll keep reading.
