A couple of weeks ago, checked out Amazon’s recommendations and was happy to learn some of my favorite authors have new books coming out, so of course I had to order them. One, the latest from Neal Stephanson, arrives tomorrow. In REAMDE, Stephanson returns his plot to something at least resembling the real world to craft a technothriller about gold-farming, viruses, the Russian mob, and apparently a lot of guns for some reason.

SBoing Boing has a review. Bottom line: it’s good.

I ordered the print version, though at nearly 1000 pages, I probably should have gone Kindle with this one.
