Video: Charlie Stross reads HALTING STATE at Google

Craig sends in this "video of Charlie Stross's visit to Google's headquarters where he gave a reading of his book, 'Halting State'." Halting State -- a novel about a heist in a multiplayer online role-playing game -- is one hell of a fantastic book and Charlie's a GREAT reader. Link (Thanks, Craig!)

  1. I really adored this book, as I love everything Mr. Stross has published (with the exception of Glasshouse; I cannot explain why). For anyone else who enjoys his work, I would also suggest looking into Connie Willis, Robert Charles Wilson and John Scalzi: they each write about very different topics, in very different ways, but these authors seem to share a devotion to the craft and art of writing that (for myself at least) makes each work of theirs a visceral pleasure to read. This is a new Golden Age, and these are the ringmasters of it.

    I would also recommend Cory’s work, but I figure if you’re reading this, you already know about him. :)
