With a typical mix of whimsicality and post-cyberpunk savvy, the co-authors tout this novel as "a tale of the singularity, posthumanity, and awkward social situations." Certainly, this novel by Cory Doctorow (Little Brother; Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom) and Charles Stross (Accelerando) defies rudimentary synopsis: Who, after all, can adequately describe a realm where individual essences have been uploaded and mingle, creating a swarm that leaves stragglers and throwbacks like Huw Jones haplessly behind? The Rapture of the Nerds itself manages to straddle two worlds, encompassing both classic science fiction and post-modern digital fantasies. Editor's recommendation.
