I've read it, but I'm not a fan of it.  Too many people take it as a serious alt-history instead of the satire of the genre that it is.

Well, it it's a satire it's a very "dead pan" one. I never noticed anything to indicate that it wasn't meant seriously.

I must say though, that while I know Stirling doesn't like the Moslem world, getting rid of it that way did rather strike me as overkill.

Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four is a satire too. The term "satire" doesn't necessarily mean that it's supposed to be funny.

Obama's complaints about Republicans stopping his agenda are BS since he had full control for two years. He can never take responsibility.
