This week my teaser is from The Rapture of the Nerds by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross. The book is actually available online for free, since they published it through a Creative Commons (CC-BY-NC-ND-3.0) license. I have to say the story is a little weird a short ways in (weird being subjective, of course) but I like it so far. And hey, who could resist reading a book with the subtitle "A tale of the singularity, posthumanity, and awkward social situations"?
As it turns out, like much of the newer local architecture it's an inflatable building, an outsized bounce-house made of metallic fabric and aerogel and compressed air. The whole thing could be deflated and carted elsewhere on a flatbed truck in a morning, or simply attached to a dirigible and lifted to a new spot. (A great safety-yellow gasket the size of a manhole cover sprouts from one side, hooked into power, bandwidth, sewage and water.)-p. 45
What are you reading now, either fiction or non-fiction? Got any teasers to share?
