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.
