In a thread titled Why are githyanki cool?:
So a good rule of thumb for assessing monster longevity is, "Did Charlie Stross invent it?"

(I'm imagining this as pretty much every ride along in a sexbot MC story with a TG twist. Which probably already exists. But with more social commentary. Which probably also already exists.)

Seen on RPG.net:
Of course, if Stross ever succumbs to the braineater, we'll find ourselves reading about a complex method of navigating an intricate economic system that only makes sense if the reader has undergone an operation to install an entirely new sense into their brain.
And later:
Narrated from the perspective of a hyperlibidinal fourteen-year-old girl with cybernetic hands.

From the cover of Charlie Stross' next novel, The Apocalypse Codex (due in July (yes, I know). Don't know what I'm going to use it for yet, but I'll think of something. Full size picture here.

In Charles Stross' Laundry series, why are we reading Bob's memoirs, and not Mo's? Whenever there's a cut scene to Mo's activities, we get an explanation that Bob wasn't there, but this is what he imagined happening. Did Angleton not ask Mo to write up her experiences, or is she just not a very good writer?

From Warren Ellis' Second Life column at Reuters:
Someone said, “is that actually your signature? Wow! I can commit bank fraud now!” So I was forced to tell the crowd that it was actually Cory Doctorow’s signature, and any fraud would affect his bank account, not mine. Someone else commented that with Cory and I both having done inworld appearances, they now just had to get Charles Stross in. I’ve known both Charlie and Cory for years, but it’s weird that people are thinking of us as some freak triumvirate now….
