Since we didn’t have much response to this discussion, I’m going to end by just asking: how did you like the book?

Me? I love cyberpunk, and I think Effinger is a master story teller. He puts us in the Budayeen, a dirty, cutthroat, futuristic, Islamic world. This book is and always will be one of my all time favorites.

What’s next? The next discussion will be large in scope with Maureen Birnbaum at its center. So stay tuned for details. We will begin in January with the new year. Don’t miss it.
