Singularity Sky

I have more or less sworn off of science fiction (except for Jack Vance, who insists his work isn't science fiction anyway)... for the past ten or fifteen years. It just seemed that nothing being published was especially interesting or well written enough to bother with.

Happened across Singularity Sky by 40 year old Brit Charles Stross. It's very high tech (he's an IT person by profession), and military (not usually a good combination), but it's sparklingly original and fun. First solid RECOMMEND I can give a sci-fi book since at least Eon by Greg Bear.
