Exciting arrivals from Amazon in recent weeks have been Neal Stephenson’s new novel Anathem, for which I have been waiting with baited breath since I finshed the last of the Baroque Cycle. It’s a 950 page monster and looks to be every bit as good as it’s predecessors. Also, More Effective C# by Bill Wagner, sequel to Effective C# which is still one of the best books written on C#. Long awaited doesn’t even begin to cover it. I pre-ordered this book in March 2007 and it was only released this week, some 19 months later, which is a personal best.
