Charles Stross made his name with the 2005 novel Accelerando, which explores several generations of a single family as they travel through the Singularity -- the time when artificial intelligence and other technologies create beings with godlike intelligence and powers. Stross returns to the theme of machine intelligence with his latest novel Neptune's Brood, a space opera set thousands of years in the future. In Neptune's Brood, the robot successors to the human race attempt to follow a financial trail that might lead to history's greatest scientific breakthrough, or biggest scam. Neptune's Brood takes a science-fiction look at themes we explore every day at Internet Evolution: Machine intelligence, business, and the networked, information economy. Also: Space pirates!
