Charles Stross – Halting State

Posted by Dirk under: books .

Cool book set in a possible near future (2018 is the setting, but it was published in 2007) where a bunch of orcs and a dragon rob the bank of an online MMORPG which causes a cascading series of events in both the real world and the online world.  Set in Scotland (and several online worlds).  I liked it quite a bit. Lots of references for an old gamer like me and lots of cool thoughts about what the future holds from Mr. Stross.  You should check it out.  (and I think he just came out with a sequel of sorts).
