Another book in the Polity series by Neal Asher. Done as a tip of the iceberg story about a Pandora's box of nanotechnology potentially created by an unknown ancient race to destroy any form of life uncautious enough to use it.I found the author's blog, The Skinner , through the author's Wikipedia entry, Neal Asher. I also found some more of his books that I haven't read and didn't know about. As well as two free online stories by Neal Asher and one by another cyberpunk author, David Marusek, at Free Speculative Fiction Online: Links to Science Fiction & Fantasy Stories Online Website.
