Product description

Review

A master of politically charged sf, MacLeod channels our contemporary preoccupation with terrorism into an engulfing stream of espionage and international intrigue. -- BOOKLIST

Ken MacLeod's novels are fast, funny and sophisticated. There can never be enough books like these. -- KIM STANLEY ROBINSON

Science fiction's freshest new writer...MacLeod is a fiercely intelligent, prodigously well-read author who manages to fill his books with big issues without weighing them down. -- SALON

Ken MacLeod's The Execution Channel starts like a techno-thriller "ripped from tomorrow's headlines", a thrilling, fast-moving tale of suspense rife with paranoia and multiple conspiracy theories. However, it's deeper and more thoughtful than most thrillers. MacLeod vividly and economically portrays an all-too-plausible world in which war has spread across the Middle East and Central Asia; millions of Americans live in FEMA concentration camps due to climate change; the British Government is considering deporting all Muslims, and what's really happening is hidden in a blizzard of disinformation and propaganda. This is politically engaged, speculative fiction at its finest, with a conclusion that's absolutely mind-blowing. ― THE TIMES

Politically engaged, speculative fiction at its finest, with a conclusion that's absolutely mind-blowing ― The Times

Jaw-droppingly audacious ― SFX

A very good book, perhaps the best Ken MacLeod has written to date . . . The Execution Channel is an extraordinary novel ― STRANGE HORIZONS
