MacLeod, Ken -- Newton's Wake

Standalone. Better than his last trilogy, not as good as his first few books. Every plot detail has fallen out of my head. Some kind of cultural argument about dead people. Has musical theater.

Accidental re-read -- I forgot I owned the hardcover. (Sorry, Ken.) Amusing, though not world-changing, first-contact story in a galaxy littered with posthuman remnant tech, being scavenged and used by everyone in sight. Including the contactors and the contactees, in non-identical ways. Details of politics, fashion, and culture (folk-singers! Bad folk-singers!) ring true in the presence of life extension and mind-storage. Also, not part of a series, which I appreciate.
