The Night Sessions - Ken MacLeod I have this certainty that somewhere out there, perhaps as yet unwritten, but somewhere, is a really incredible Science Fiction novel by Ken MacLeod. Alas, this one still isn't it. It's fun, it's quick, it's readable, it's got some neat ideas and some decent writing, and it helpfully tones down Macleod's tendency to undercut his narratives with rather bad jokes. But it's not the one.

I may need an independent Scotland tag at this rate. Between MacLeod and Stross I don't think i've read quite as much about the near future of anywhere as I have about Edinburgh. Any day now, I'll be able to spell it right at first go!
