I’m a huge fan of Charles Stross’ books and short stories and am particularly fond of the anachronistic starship in Singularity Sky. Something about the combination of brass speaking tubes and faster-than-light drives just tickles me in all the right places. This is my attempt to do some vague amount of justice to the bridge featured in the book.
PS. If you like good sci-fi you should read as much of Stross’ catalogue as possible. The man is a modern great of the genre.
