Paul Berman Is a Deeply Broken Person

Walter Jon Williams's Implied Spaces

S.M. Stirling tells me that I must buy this book:

Night Shade Books: Williams, Walter Jon - Implied Spaces: Implied Spaces pioneers a new genre of SF--the 'Sword & Singularity' novel. Williams combines fantasy tropes believably with nanotech, bleeding-edge infotech speculation, classic smashing-planets space opera and intriguingly human, or possibly post-human characters along with a fast-moving plot and a quirky sense of humor in a melange that's cosmological, theological, ontological, comic, and thoroughly entertaining.
