September Books 19) Tragedy Day, by Gareth Roberts

I read this with some interest given that we had an episode by Roberts on TV last weekend, but there's not much connection between them; this is a satire on media culture, with some particularly vicious digs at cult tv and charity fund-raising, with plot elements including an evil child genius, celebrity androids and voracious genetically engineered monsters. Points for having a gay character without making a big deal of it.
