Quicksilver reads like one of those historical adventure-and-fuckery novels, except aimed at geeks. And with less fuckery than the norm. I was looking forward to some hot Waterhouse/Newton slash, except that would have made Waterhouse more of a Gary Stu. Instead, there was just UST.

Neal Stephenson has become a library-first author.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
