Rapture of the Nerds is a Campbell Award finalist

Well, this is fabulous news: Rapture of the Nerds, the novel Charlie Stross and I published last year, is a finalist for the 2013 Campbell Award for best novel. It's in some truly outstanding company, too -- check out that shortlist!


  1. Congratulations! I’ll certainly never look at jury duty the same way again. Several of those characters could carry fun sequels on their own.

    By the way, the flurry of sconomic-proxy war via rapid process cloning/forking reminded me of two similar battles between time-jumping entities… one in Lord of Light, the other in Fall of Hyperion. Nicely done.

  2. Congrats, and good luck! I just finished reading it recently. It was a deeply weird book. Really, really, really weird. (That is not a criticism.)
