The Execution Channel By Ken MacLeod

This is bad. This is very very bad. Torchwood very very bad not Daleks In Manhattan bad. It is a techno-thriller which does not thrill. The techno-geo-political background does not make sense, neither does it work as a novel. In fact, given its failure on both these levels I had to Google for articles etc. to make sure it wasn't an elaborate post-modern joke I was too stupid to get.
