My pal Jim Munroe's new novel, "Everyone in Silico," is out. Jim's a former editor at AdBusters, and his science fiction novels (FlyBoy Action Figure Comes with Gas-Mask, Angry Young Spaceman) are satirical political sf in the grand tradition of Pohl and Kornbluth's The Space Merchants. I read Silico in draft and was utterly delighted with it; it's a vicious and funny dissection of consumer culture. Jim is a DIY media kinda guy, so while you can buy his books in stores, but if you buy direct from him, you get his CDROM of DIY media, short films and an interactive novel called "Punk Points."
