The Risen Empire

Just finished The Risen Empire by Scott Westerfeld. Interesting hard SciFi space opera. One of it's basic themes is transhumanism; the people of The Risen Empire work to become posthuman by becoming undead [more or less], the Rix are all cyborgs and work to create planetary scale AIs. Other races are mentioned, one working towards biological solutions, one towards informational immortality [videotaping every second of your life, keeping a weblog, etc.]

The author has recently started a blog. I think I need a category in my sidebar for authors' blogs.
