eliphas, napping

High-octane nightmare fuel

Just finished Charles Stross' "Trade of Queens". Holy fuck. That one makes Watchmen at its bleakest feel like Narnia. George R.R. Martin might come close to that amount of stomach-turning brutality in A Song of Ice and Fire, but without the high-octane part.

It's also a brilliant, clever book, kind of funny in a Tom Lehrer way.
