SINGULARITY SKY by Charles Stross PROLOGUE The day war was declared, a rain of telephones fell clattering to the cobblestones from the skies above Novy Petrograd. Some of them had half melted in the heat of re-entry others pinged and ticked, cooling rapidly in the postdawn chill. An inquisitive pigeon hopped close, head cocked to one side it pecked at the shiny case of one such device, then fluttered away in alarm when it beeped. A tinny voice spoke: Hello Will you entertain us The Festival had ...
