Stross, Charles: Accelerando v2.0 2008-07-19

I present to you Accelerando by Charles Stross released under a creative commons license.

Quote:
Manfred Macx, a 21st-century intelligence amplification entrepreneur, lives partly in the physical world and partly in the virtual world of artificial intelligences, the Internet, biotechnology, and molecular nanotechnology. His 12-year-old daughter Amber, who seeks independence from her controlling mother, indentures herself to a company aiming to extract a fortune from the resources of Jupiter. Decades later, Amber's son Sirhan, a victim of multiple virtual childhoods, researches his dysfunctional family and uncovers a sinister new life form that threatens the continuation of biological life in the universe.

Expanding on his award-winning short story cycle that appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction magazine, Stross (Singularity Sky) reveals a vision of the future that encompasses and expands on the newest technologies and explores the possibilities of humanity's future. Joining the ranks of William Gibson (Neuromancer), Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash), and Bruce Sterling (Schismatrix), Stross fuses ideas and characters with cheerful abandon and creates a high-tech galactic adventure that belongs in most libraries.

Version 2.0 posted to make it fit in with my current formatting and to fix an issue with the internal ToC.

Thanks Jon--

Finally got around to reading this. Good stuff so far.

According to wikipedia, some of Stross' other work are available online via Creative Commons. Any idea if these are eligible to be converted?

Reckon that I could try to do it myself with calibre, but I amn't so skilled as others around here.
