The Panopticon series by A.E. Currie is near-future, speculative science fiction that explores the issues currently facing us: climate change, AI, surveillance and the individual vs the state.
5*: "thought provoking and intelligently written sci-fi that I couldn’t put down"
5*: "Highly recommended"
5*: "Part thoughtful & reflective science fiction, part entertaining rollercoaster romp reminiscent of the best of Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat, this is turning into a most excellent series"

This website is hosted on Google because Anne is a believer that we need to #greentheweb ASAP. She was a founder member of the Sustainable Servers campaign to encourage the tech industry, which is one of the fastest growing users of electricity, to power the cloud with renewable energy.
Collective action like that is more effective than individual action. Google are currently the best major tech company for the climate (they are the biggest non-gov purchaser of renewable energy in the world*) so Anne's using them where possible.
*Amazon has just announced they have taken this title. That's competition we want to see! Nonetheless, Google are still in front on website hosting, Amazon have just started spending big bucks to catch up, which is great.
