Charles Stross

Charles Stross should need no introduction, but I’ve never let that stop me before. Charlie is one of my favourite writers – often funny, always interesting and even thought-provoking. And more fun than a very fun thing that’s quite excited. Not quite an internet puppy, though. Loads of books, some of which are still on my to-read list, but I’ll make a start anyway.

The Laundry

The Laundry is the code name, more or less, for a super-secret part of the UK’s secret security services. Set in a universe where all that Lovecraftian stuff about ancient powers and Great Old Ones is more or less true, with added mathematics, the books are centred around full-time IT geek and part-time active agent Bob Howard (not his real name, obviously) who encounters all manner of soul-sucking evil, not least the dread power of the Human Resources department.
