Brian Aldiss' new novel, HARM

Have you read Aldiss' new novel? HARM is a brilliant novel about a comedic British novelist arrested in England for writing a "sedicious" passage. It is also about a human colony on another world inhabited by intelligent natives. Mostly, though, it's about the US and British reactions to 9/11 that have led our nations toward totalitarianism and how fighting a war against the enemy within leads to the loss of our humanity.

I highly recommend it.
