[Update: A more complete review now available at http://infinitetasks.wordpress.com/2011/01/02/pop-goes-the-apocalypse/ .] I taught Pop Apocalypse in a First-Year Seminar at the University of San Francisco, on Philosophy and Science Fiction. The students loved it. It's a very funny and engaging read, and highly intelligent. There are some subtle odes to David Foster Wallace, William Gibson, and Alex Shakar, but it is not at all derivative. Lee also attended class to discuss the book in person, and we had a great conversation. Highly recommended as science fiction, post-ironic literature, but mostly as just a roaring good time!
