Welcome to the fractured future, at the dusk of the 21st century. Earth has a population of roughly a billion, living in a preserve at the bottom of a gravity well. Young Huw, technophobic, misanthropic, has been selected for Tech Jury Service, a task he does his best to perform despite an itchy technovirus, the apathy of the proletariat, and some truly awful moments on bathroom floors.

Review:

"mindbendingly entertaining... the novel is a surefire hit for genre fans. Fans of Adam Roberts' elegant, intellectually challenging SF will also be on firm ground here." --Booklist

Both Doctorow and (especially) Stross are writers who like to keep the ideas-per-page ratio as high as possible, and the level of inventive concepts thrown at the audience makes THE RAPTURE OF THE NERDS a thrillingly imaginative read. --SFX Review

"Rapture of the Nerds is a glorious ride, that will make your head spin and fingers keep wanting to turn the pages." --Nerd Like You
