I like John Barnes, although I'm sure I get him confused with another author of a similar name. Anyway, I buy his books automatically.

This was good: biocomputing, artificial intelligence, personality alteration, lone individual fighting the world, bounty hunters (I'll have to read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep" - yes "Blade Runner" - again now). There was even a nice plot twist - took me by surprise (but that's easy).

Currie Curtis Curran is OK in my book.
