A Scottish SF writer who makes you think, but isn’t Iain M Banks

Although he is, apparently, a friend. Ken MacLeod knows his stuff when it comes to left-wing groupuscles. I read The Star Fraction a few months ago, and immediately bought The Stone Canal to devour in a few sittings.

He seems to enjoy discussing the variants of socialist and liberal/libertarian thought. The other day I looked him up on Wikpedia and found his blog – The Early Days of a Better Nation Currently it isn’t being used much, but check out the post on Saturday, January 27, 2007 – it starts off discussing Mao, and winds all over the place but in a fascinating and coherent way.

I’d give my arms to be able to writet like that.
