  1. Authors@Google: Cory Doctorow & Charles Stross | “The Rapture of Nerds”

    Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross have just signed with Tor Books to co-author a fix-up novel based on a series of short stories called Rapture of the Nerds. The authors and their editor told us what to expect:

    Cory and Charlie intend to write a third novella in the sequence begun with "Jury Service" and "Appeals Court," and THE RAPTURE OF THE NERDS will consist of all three novellas, possibly with some small additional connective tissue if necessary.

    Many distinguished SF "novels" have actually been stitched together from short-fiction serieses like this; the venerable industry term for such a book is "fix-up", which doesn’t imply anything deprecatory.

  2. Appeals Court Part 4

    Here’s the fourth and final installment of my reading of Charlie Stross’s and my gonzo Singularity novella Appeals Court. It’s the sequel to Jury Service, the first thing Charlie and I ever wrote together. We’re about to start work on Parole Board, the thrilling conclusion, which Tor will be publishing as a novel under the title Rapture of the Nerds, a title we nicked from the brilliant Ken MacLeod.

  6. Jury Service by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross part 5

    Here’s part 5 of Jury Service. Jury Service is the first of two novellas Charlie Stross and I wrote about Huw, a technophobe stuck on Earth after the Singularity (the other one being Appeals Court). They are both being published, along with a third, yet-to-be-written novella Parole Board by Tor Books as Rapture of the Nerds. We’re starting work on Parole Board in January, and to refamiliarize myself with the earlier novellas, I’m going to podcast both now (with the gracious permission of Charlie and our editor, Patrick Nielsen Hayden). Hope you enjoy ‘em - they’re as gonzo as I’ve ever gotten, I think!
