Waiting On Wednesday: The Apocalypse Codex by Charles Stross

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Apocalypse Codex by Charles Stross

In the world of the Laundry, there is One True Religion — and we know how to deal with cultists when we find them. When a prominent televangelist with connections to 10 Downing Street shows disturbing signs of being able to work miracles, it’s only natural for the Laundry, the secret service for dealing with occult threats, to take an interest. But there’s a fly in the ointment: the first rule of the secret services is, spying on the Prime Minister and their associates is forbidden. It’s time to send in the freelancers – except in the world of the Laundry, officially there’s no such thing…(July 3, 2012)

Despite having 3 titles on my shelf (Glasshouse, Rule 34, and Saturn's Children), I've yet to give Stross a read. Something about this one has really snagged my attention, though, so it may be time to catch up on some laundy . . . sorry for the bad pun. :)

  7. Good luck, Stross is the kind of writer that I keep thinking I have to like, but I never seemed to be able to enjoy. I read Accelerando, and the first Laundry novel. I don't know, he just never connected with me.

    I hope you like this one.
