    Here is a modern novelette in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. Imagine David Cronenberg directing Dr. Strangelove, based on a script by H. P. Lovecraft. Imagine an alternate history in which nuclear bombs are not the ultimate weapon, but instead are merely a stepping stone to eldritch technologies accessible through certain trans-dimensional forces first encountered in 1920s Antarctica, technologies that neither the United States nor the USSR can quite contain.

    Max Draco says: "Good story, Bad narration"
    "One of best sci fi/horror stories of recent years."
    Overall

    I read this originally in his collection, Toast, I think. So good I paid again to hear it read.

    Manfred Macx is a patent junkie, spending his days dreaming up ideas that will make him rich, very rich indeed. He patents them and then offers them up to anyone for free. In doing so, he has shunned the need for cash, preferring to live off the generosity of his benefactors. Enter uploaded lobsters wanting to defect, government investigations, and a dominatrix ex-girlfriend who works for the IRS and you've got yourself a hip post-cyberpunk tale.

    Woeltje says: "Great story, poor narration"
    "So good it's kinda disorienting"
    Overall

    I read this as part of his novel, Accellerando I think. It was so I good I paid to download a CD.
