SINCE I MENTIONED IT YESTERDAY, people want to know what I think of William Gibson’s new novel, Spook Country. Alas, I haven’t started it yet. I’m currently reading the new Harry Turtledove book, the conclusion to his alt-history series in which the South won the Civil War, producing a series of follow-on conflicts making America look more like 20th Century Europe. It should be required reading for all those neo-confederate types who wish things had gone the other way in 1865. Meanwhile, if you follow the link there are some very positive reader reviews of Gibson’s book, and an interview, too.
