Rapture of the Nerds Mind-bending Blog Tour

From two of the science-fiction genre’s more exciting voices, New York Times bestselling author, blogger and technology activist, Cory Doctorow (Little Brother), and multiple award-winning science-fiction legend, Charles Stross (Rule 34), comes a dystopian hard science-fiction adventure drawing on concepts from cyberpunk and videogames, The Rapture of the Nerds.

Set in a fractured future, The Rapture of the Nerds follows a technophobic Welshman who receives a summons to sit on a Tech Jury Service. To learn more about the novel that Booklist described as “mind-bendingly entertaining but almost impossible to explain’, please see the series of review and author interviews by the UK’s top science-fiction and books bloggers below.
