I looked at Hamilton's vol 1 of his new Salvation trilogy. £10-odd for the Kindle edition. No thanks.

An intelligent piece on the intricacies of the forthcoming porn block. It's much more insidious than just porn.

I'm willing to bet that the TOR network increases exponentially in the UK in the coming months.

The problem with that method of accessing Porn is that's the really shady side of the internet, so they're likely to push kids into areas where they can access really extreme pornography.
This is possibly deliberate as it will give them a new crusade in a few years time.
(They'll claim they didn't know kids would find other ways of accessing porn, but they know fine well what's going to happen...they'll have been advised.)

Just finished Salvation Lost. Part 2 of Hamilton's trilogy.
Complex, not always easy to follow. Still, I enjoyed it.
Part 3 is due out next autumn.
