For those 2006 Hugo/Campbell voters out there, I’m happy to note that our 2006 Hugo/Campbell voters electronic edition package has been sweetened by 50% with the addition of Charlie Stross’ 2006 Hugo-nominated novel Accelerando. Click here for the update to the original entry, plus information on how you can get Accelerando if you’ve already downloaded the package.
w00t! Charlie’s in!

While the temptation to mis-spell swearwords is almost overpowering, I’ll just take the chance to say that _Accelerando_, while brilliant, was only 74% comprehensible when written on paper. Reading it on the screen would probably trip even finely tuned weirdness-oriented readership. It would be like reading _Finnegan’s Wake_ printed on otter-skin vellum. Flaming otter-skin vellum.
Flaming Otterskin Vellum – that would be a great name for a SCA/Goth metal band. First dibs on the bored-femur flute!
