New story from Ted Chiang

"The Lifecycle of Software Objects", a novella to be published "this Summer" by Subterranean, apparently as a small independent book.

Not likely to be online till next year's Hugos, though - so may be worth buying. But I'll wait for a few reviews first - even the great Chiang has given a few duds in the past.

Question: When does summer arrive at Subterranean? It's been summer for a month now where I live, though it will get much worse during April & May. Does summer arrive later in more northern latitudes? I'm 18 degrees north of equator.
