I'm about halfway through Charles Stross' excellent new novel,
"Halting State". It's set in Edinburgh in the year 2018, and one of
the main characters is a game programmer whose primary language is
something called "Python 3000".
The cover features blurbs from William Gibson, Vernor Vinge, John
Carnack, and Bruce Scheier.
What, they couldn't pop for an advance copy for Guido?
