Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman
I love io9. (I’ve applied to be an intern twice, I love it so much.) Before I began reading it, I used to be a bit concerned it might focus more on science than I’d like, and the cyborg elf that is its logo is not so reassuring. But luckily, I did—and almost better than the blog itself is the commentators. Over the holidays, one comment thread turned into book recommendations, and a commentator recommended Soon I Will Be Invincible, which I’d encountered at the bookstore before. It sounded worth a shot, so I picked it up when I came back to school. I was pleasantly surprised.
