Hugo Reading 2019: The Nightmare Stacks

The Nightmare Stacks The Nightmare Stacks by Charles Stross
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is a muddled mishmash of Tolkien, Lovecraft and supernatural noir spy thriller, run through a twee, cutesy British filter and sporting a hefty amount of Neal Stephenson Overexplaining and Deadly Minutiae Syndrome (pages upon pages of weaponry description, just like pages upon pages of orbital mechanics, does not a story make), that made me struggle to finish it. Needless to say, I didn't like it very much. If that sort of thing sounds appealing to you, by all means have at it.
