So, back when I reviewed This Is Not A Game, by Walter Jon Williams, I wrote: "Walter Jon Williams is one of those rare authors who can write in just about any sub-genre of SF and pull it off well, so even when he's writing about swords with embedded quantum singularities and talking cats (talking cats!!) I will buy his stuff." It was, overall, a positive review, and contributed to my overall impression that WJW can do anything and succeed at it.

Unfortunately, the sequel to that book, Deep State sort of shattered that notion for me. Unfortunately, to explain why I almost threw the book against the wall (only being stuck waiting for car repairs made me finish it) requires spoilers.

So, I will put this review behind two cuts: The light spoilery normal review stuff, then an HR, then a serious batch of world-destroying spoilers under a second one.
