Rebirths of Tao File Update

Hi folks!

Many of you rushed to your digital stores to buy Wesley Chu’s phenomenal The Rebirths of Tao, concluding volume in his award-winning Tao Trilogy.

Look what we found in the AR archive

In spring, like so many people, one’s thoughts turn to tidying up a bit, i.e. spring cleaning. Our bristling orbital death platform has been looking a bit dusty and ramshackle of late – books and body parts everywhere, of course, but also crates of a less identifiable nature.

Right at the bottom of the most distant stack, in a wooden chest marked in a font of a distinctly pre-millenial variety (how you get Comic Sans on the side of an oak case I’ve no idea), we made a delighted discovery. In short, we found mint copies of some of Angry
