It's Scott's lone instance of technoporn here, unless you also count the flashy aerial photography that captures some rather arresting views of Manhattan and the overhead whip pans that appear to speed a camera from midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn, as if Scott scouted locations using Google maps.
I read plenty of non-technoporn SF CJ Cherry, Connie Willis, Maureen McHugh… hmm trying to think of another dude, but if it’s going to have a technoporn plot, it had better deliver on the promises.
Spin was well written, as much of RCW’s work has been, and the story is well structured, good characters… but it’s like the soft-core version of technoporn: there’s all the trappings of science fiction, all the strange and bizarre happenings, but the how and why — the money shot, if you will — is when the camera turns away and all you get is elbows and gasping faces.
