"There is more than one world"
The writer Charles Stross gave a reading last night in Edinburgh Waterstones. The Edinburgh author was launching the latest book in his 'Merchant Princes' series - the Clan Corporate - which is an epic fantasy (or sociological sci-fi if you prefer) dealing with alternate realities and diverging timelines. One of the things I like about listening to Charlie or reading his blog is that he always has an informed and incisive point of view and he is amusing with it. Last night was no different and we were treated not only to a reading but also to some great Stross insights. Here is a wee clip where Charlie outlines the inspirations for his current series.

I was there! Heard you talking to Ken but didn't get a chance to introduce myself.
Cool. Yes I enjoyed the reading and am enjoying the book too. I think I prefer the more fantasy type stuff to the straight SF.
