* InvisibleAliens: In ''Accelerando'', they built Matrioshka brains and subsequently vanished. This is, it turns out, the natural course of development for intelligent life: they hit the Singularity, upload their minds into/get consumed by artificial intelligences, and spend the rest of their history centered around a single star, because traveling to another one is just too costly to be worthwhile. Needless to say, humanity faces the same fate.

* 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.
