Stross' new Laundry list
Did you know that Bob Howard of The Laundry Files is named after the BOFH?
SciFi Author Charles Stross has published a new chronology of his popular Laundry Files series, in which he details future books in the series.
The Delirium Brief, due in June 2017, will open with protagonist Bob Howard “being grilled live on Newsnight by Jeremy Paxman.”
Howard, full name Bob Oliver Francis Howard, is named for our very own BOFH. The series details Howard's exploits as a member of a secret anti-occult branch of the UK intelligence services that understands magic is really just sophisticated maths and is therefore something possible to accomplish using computers.
The list contains very mild spoilers. ®
