I've Got Something to Show You (and for once it's not a dead hooker)

So, I wrote a novel.

First attempt at this, and it scared the heck out of me, but I think it's pretty darn good (or is at least has the potential of getting there). From talking with Delta and Seijin on the AWTR-Prime thread, they've been reading it, and the benefits I've gotten from their editing suggestions have been amazing. Considering this, and considering that this community is probably one of the brightest, fiction-focused, and diverse groups I'm part of on these here interwebs, I was wondering if any others of you would be interested in reading and giving feedback?

I understand if it's a too-large investment, so I can send over the first section as a trial as well, and if you'd like to press forward, I can send the rest later.

As for basic ideas on what this novel is about: it's a scifi (probably mil-scifi, but I try to avoid wank) story of a mission gone wrong (how original), the question of what makes a human being, questions of the state versus the nation, a haunted internet, a critical mass of snark, and a lot of 'splosions. Technologies explored include graybox based AI, negative mass, and genetic and mental engineering.

Anyone interested, please let me know, I would LOVE to hear what your thoughts are.

I guess I'll just email the Adobe or OpenOffice file to anyone interested, unless someone knows how to host the thing right here on the site.

Thanks!

EDIT: I've added the files to Dropbox. Don't have Dropbox? Get it here, and pass along your email address for an invite to view the folder.
