Fact of Fiction:
The best science fiction book I've read this year is Karl Schroeder's "Stealing Worlds". This book is a near-future science fiction brain bender that weaves together incredible plausible futures for technologies like blockchain, DACs, smart contracts, AI, surveillance, identity, cybersecurity, and advanced computing.  If it sounds like a lot, it is...but the way the tech comes together is fascinating.  The plot line is compelling with a a fully fleshed out set of characters and great world-building.  As someone who takes great pride in being able to predict the ending of fictional books, I was also caught completely by surprise with the twist this one took.  I consumed the Audiobook which is also expertly narrated.  (Amazon Link)
