Bedlam by Christopher BrookmyreSuggested by Lionel. I enjoyed this. I feel like I've read similar things in the past (though not as game orientated and I can't quite put my finger on what exactly). I kinda knew where it was going from the outset, but I enjoyed the read. It was interesting to have so much Scottish humour (and humour in general), not used to seeing that in my sci-fi.

All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses An Eye by Christopher BrookmyreEmma bought me a signed copy of this last year because I love using the expression in the title. I hadn't got around to reading it yet, partly because I didn't really know what it was about. It is our bookgroup book this month. I loved it. I got to about page five and it reminded me of Jagged Alliance: female mercenary computer hacker, I thought 'cool'. It's also based on some characters from Lanarkshire and Glasgow, so I liked some of the local references.
