Earlier this week I burned through a new book by Charles Stross, next in The Laundry series of SF/Horror novels, The Annihilation Score. Now, I've really loved this series of novels and short stories. They deal with a very modern take on Lovecraftian horror and a technical look at magic, and they're delicious reads. The earlier books and stories are written from the viewpoint of Bob, a programmer, but this latest one is from his wife's viewpoint as it happens. It's a nice change of pace/twist and it reads very well. I give this a very high rating, but it only really works well if you've been reading the whole series, something that I'd urge if you like the genre at all.

I hate to spoiler this, but considering what happens to her at the end, I doubt that she'll be the protagonist again for a while.

No spoiler- I've read it. And yes, probably not Mo again next time- though her life has changed so much that it's possible.

Anything is possible. Things will have to get pretty bad if both of them end up being involved.
