* BilingualBonus: Aineko's name is derived from 愛猫 ("''aibyō''") which means "pet cat". The second character, 猫, is also the character for cat ("''neko''"). If you say "''aineko''" it's also like saying "A.I. neko" since it is also an ArtificialIntelligence.

A SpeculativeFiction series by Creator/CharlesStross.

Earlier versions of this page claimed that Glasshouse is a sequel to Accelerando, according to WordOfGod, however [[https://twitter.com/cstross/status/344518747152863232 this is not actually the case]], although they are the only of Stross's post-singularity novels that do not have inherently contradictory backstories.

* OhCrap: When the protagonists realize why the Vile Offspring are resimulating individuals from human history.



* Starfish Aliens: The extraterrestrial entities encountered by the passengers of the ''Field Circus'' are almost incomprehensibly different from humanity - one of them isn't even a "real" alien at all, but instead a corporate scam disguised as a digital upload of a naturally evolved organism. The only reason that Amber and Co. are able to communicate with them is because of the hyper-sophisticated translation software they have at their disposal - and even that sometimes fails to get the job done.

**Although not "aliens" per se, the Vile Offspring can also be said to qualify for this trope.
