Accelerando by Charles Stross has been nominated for the Hugo Awards Best Novel of 2005.
The story starts off as a thought-provoking near-future tale involving the rise of wearable computing as a means of intelligence amplification, then the afterburners kick in and the story rockets off into an exploration of transhumanism up to the Singularity and beyond.
Released under the Creative Commons license, Stross made the entire book available as a free download the same time the book went on sale.
Download it, read it, if you like it buy a copy and give it to a friend or add it to your library to read again later.
