Williams, Walter Jon -- This is Not a Game

I avoided this for a while because I liked Halting State and didn't want to step on it. Naturally this was silly of me. The setting is essentially not SF at all -- only a few comments about alcohol-fuelled laptops and China decoupling from the dollar (which I think is happening in real life anyhow). Imagine that alternate-reality gaming were a slightly larger slice of the computer game industry, and this plot wouldn't even be speculative. Which is to say, Williams knows his stuff and knows how to tell it.
