This is quite neat; Tor UK have come up with an online game based on fellow Tor author Neal Asher's new book 'Voyage of the Sable Keech' - though I haven't actually had time to play around with it: and it's just as interesting as an indicator of the different ways publishers can promote their books now.
What next - Ambergris MMORPG? Vellum card decks? Against Gravity shoot 'em up? All of the above, dammit. The finest java applications available to humanity!
