The Restoration Game

The Restoration Game - Ken MacLeod A crushing disappointment. The last of my xmas 2011 set to be read, and I'd been looking forward to it hugely.It isn't sf - apart from a vague stapled on prelude and coda - its pot boiled mystery and furious intrigue. Some of it is actually quite funny, to a laugh out loud level, but so much of it is boring exposition, hackneyed pseudo-sf plotting and downright poor. Extra star for the bellylaughs, but that's being hugely charitable.
