So is there a sequel planned for Escapement or is that just that reader's perception?

I'll be writing it this fall. Tourbillion is the working title, with a 2010 release date. It will close out the arc of the first two books, though I'll almost certainly come back to the world later on.

xkcd has it right. It's sort of funny, in a frightening way. What's the point of getting out the vote when some corporate goon, or some hacker, set it to suit themselves?
