A Brief Commercial Message




I hope you appreciate my restraint in not telling you in a while that you should go out and buy This Is Not a Game.

Because it's a really good book and, y'know, you should.

I enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Charles Stross’ Halting State.

I purchased two copies. One to read myself. One to pass around to friends that are not yet fans of yours.

Reading it right now. Enjoying it thoroughly - but not far enough in to comment further.

Ralph has =exactly the right idea.=

Buy more than one copy, and give the other one away!

Perfect.

Careful what you ask for dubjay >-)

I'll buy two copies and donate one to the local library to maximize the effect.

I loved it and wrote the following on goodreads.com: Walter Jon Williams is one of my favorite science-fiction writers. I'm not sure how to classify this one, probably as a "high-tech thriller." It reminds me somewhat of William Gibson's Pattern Recognition, not in the plot points, but in the structure of a current-day suspense novel filled with modern tech as a prominent aspect. The beginning of the book, which is set in Indonesia, is very suspenseful but even after that the whole thing hurtles along a great pace. The author's knowledge of modern technology is very obvious and this is integrated into the plot with great effect. Recommended.
