CoverJuly 14 is Bastille Day, France’s National Day. Here are some Revolutionary stuff at your library:

What says Vive la Revolution to you?

I’ve been [cyber]punk’d

Cover image of "Dervish is Digital" by Pat CadiganCover image of "Cory Doctorow's futuristic tales of the here and now" So thanks to the Five Book Challenge, I’ve now been introduced to  Cory Doctorow. Entertaining, imaginative, thought-provoking, and accessible. Just the way I like my sci-fi. The author picture on the back of the book  isn’t bad either. Mr Doctorow, I think you may have stolen my heart.

Now that you’ve shown me how good cyberpunk can be, I want to devote myself to your books alone, Mr Doctorow. But I’m afraid we have to part ways until I’ve finished what I started. The challenge must go on. I will remember our time together with great fondness though, and one day – very soon, I hope – I will find you again on the library’s shelves…

For my next book, I thought I’d try to find something with a feminine twist. Anyone know of any good cyberpunk/sci-fi written by women? Who has read Pat Cadigan and gives her the thumbs up?
