I read this book about 2-Oct-2005. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2003. This note was last modified Thursday, 13-Oct-2005 23:50:15 PDT.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Not novel length, but downloaded as a separate file from the Asimov's.
The adventures of the downloads in the good ship Field Circus (which old joke is never explained in the story; for me this was a perversion of the name "Field Service", the people at DEC who supposedly fixed computers). Convoluted, fun, that kind of stuff. I'd call it post-singularity, too.
I still don't like people overloading famous old titles.
