Description

Winner of the James Tiptree, Jr. Memorial Award, the Lambda Literary Award, the Locus Award for Best First Novel, and a Hugo and Nebula Award nominee.

With this groundbreaking novel, Maureen F. McHugh established herself as one of the decade's best science fiction writers. In its pages, we enter a postrevolution America, moving from the hyperurbanized eastern seaboard to the Arctic bleakness of Baffin Island; from the new Imperial City to an agricultural commune on Mars. The overlapping lives of cyberkite fliers, lonely colonists, illicit neural-pressball players, and organic engineers blend into a powerful, taut story of a young man's journey of discovery. This is a macroscopic world of microscopic intensity, one of the most brilliant visions of modern SF.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Customer Reviews

Excellent

An innovative book that is enjoyable to read. Although it has a main character, the story is told by different narrators who are loosely connected. The different view points add up to a fascinating picture of a society in the 22nd century, where China has become the dominant country. The story is told in a very personal way by each narrator. The main character, who is gay, is easy to like, as are the other narrators, who are straight. The book makes you think about human relationships and technology without without being preachy in any way. I recommend it highly.
