I've been out of circulation for a bit, so nice to see this on coming back. Well done Ellen.

Neal Stephenson is interesting: I must read the Baroque cycle novels (although I had the notion they were historical, not SF). He's one of my favourite authors, despite his co-authored novel, Cobweb, which must rank as his first bomb.

Does anyone know if William Gibson is working on another novel?

Sorry if this is off topic ...

Hi Tribeless,
Welcome back. We (well at least I) missed you.

I haven't read the Stephenson books but have been under that impression too.

I'm sure Bill is (maybe I can find out some info for you).
If so, I'll post here.

I suspect Baroque cycle must be something like Gibson/Sterling's 'Difference Engine - I think it's called steampunk. Mind you that was the only Gibson work I've found it a bit of a trial getting through. I just can't get excited about historical fiction ...

actually, having said that I loved Stephenson's WW II historical novel 'Cryptominicom' (okay, not spelt right); indeed, I preferred that to Snowcrash.

Just goes to show you've got to start from page one now and again, and take a risk (and at the prices their books sell for, it is a risk!).

Oh, yes please about Gibson updates if you can find anything :-)

Afraid there's nothing to be said other than he is indeed working on a new novel. If I hear anything about it, I'll pass on the info. :-)

The Baroque Cycle is very definitely historical in emphasis. There is only one fantastic element I can think of: one of the characters has a talent for understanding any language he hears. Otherwise, I missed it. You could also point to the dream certain characters have of constructing a primitive computer and claim it's really some kind of alternate history.

Overall, it is an amazing and instructive read, full of sharp observations on the nature of commerce, slavery, history and power. But SF it ain't.

Then how come a Locus for best SF novel?

Bit strange.

Hi Ellen,

I've been meaning to congratulate you on this...so congrats! Well-deserved! Hope you're having a great time in Scotland!

Discovering these discussion groups has been the highlight of my month. Have no idea how I missed them before.
