Product description


Ian McDonald writes science fiction like no one else; not just today, but ever before. After reading his latest novel, I think he might be best compared to a futuristic Charles Dickens. Diverse plot strands come together, past and future reflecting each other in an amazing book that easily matches McDonald's award winning Brasyl in ambition, scope and achievement. (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)

This is a brilliant, jewelled machine of a novel in which lives triggers events in other lives, in a sequence that skirts chaos and disaster, but ends with gorgeous order. (Roz Kaveney THE INDEPENDENT)

McDonald creates a convincing portrait of an Istanbul teeming with dolmuses, meyhanes and apple tea, and his writing reflects his in-depth research about the country; if Orhan Pahmuk suddenly decided to bring nano-technology into his stories, it might read a little like this. Another epic, complex and intelligent offering from McDonald. Fans of realistic, character-driven SF will love it, and anyone with a familiarity of Istanbul will get an extra kick out of the novel." (TOTAL SCI FI)

Book Description

The new SF epic from Ian McDonald does for Turkey what BRASYL did for Brazil.
