Autonomous – by Annalee Newitz
Oh, but this is a cracking read! Biohackers on the run from the law, killer robots, and – best of all – patent law!
If you told me this was a new Cory Doctorow novel, I’d believe it in a heartbeat.
The book is full of lovely little riffs on modern Internet culture – and presents a plausible view of how the world may develop given a rapid rise in biotech.
At times monstrously dark, and by turns blisteringly funny, this is perfect pulp-fiction.
