Delighted to announce that Irregularity is part of this month's 'Nerd History' Storybundle, sitting alongside some rather fascinating works of computing non-fiction.*
Storybundles are fun. You pay what you want. The books are DRM free. You get a ton of reading. And a big ol' cut goes to an awesome charity - in this case, the Computer History Museum. For those counting down the days until Jurassic goes extinct, it is also a nice way to pick up Irregularity before it disappears into the ether. (Or aether, take your pick.)
Irregularity contains over a dozen stories of the Age of Reason - featuring the ambitious men and women who tried to categorise and organise the world. And all the things that defied such organisation...
It contains stories by E.J. Swift**, Kim Curran***, Claire North, Nick Harkaway, Simon Guerrier, Rose Biggin, James Smythe, Henrietta Rose-Innes, Richard de Nooy, Roger Luckhurst, M. Suddain, Archie Black, Tiffani Angus and Adam Roberts.**** Plus some gorgeously irregular art from Gary Northfield, and an afterword from our partners at the National Maritime Museum.
Tis a pretty good book, if I say so myself. And now's a chance to get it with six of its friends!
*Disclaimer: As compelling as time-travelling Bryan May and mechanical dinosaurs might be, Irregularity is not actually non-fiction. Unless you want it to be, in which case, go for it.
**This one was longlisted for the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Prize.
***This one got Tiptree Honors.
****This one was described as 'the most Adam Roberts thing that Adam Roberts has ever Adam Robertsed'. Which is pretty accurate.
