Well that was disappointing. After a fair-to-middling performance in his debut novel WebMage, I was really hoping Kelly McCullough would improve for his second outing. And he did, to some extent. Cybermancyis plagued by many of the same problems that made WebMage tedious and repetitive. They’re toned down a bit, and by the end of the book McCullough seems to have been able to rid his writing of word count boosting repetitive sentences. Unfortunately, he’s substituted bad writing for bad storytelling.
