Fairyland by Paul J. McAuley — 7 years ago
Truly a splendid novel. Paul J. McAuley is among the finest of worldbuilders alive today, and that’s not all. Fairyland is truly deserving of both major awards it received (and several it didn’t).
A truly disturbing look at a future where nanotechnology and gengineering reign supreme and neoliberalism has destroyed so many lives – a future that may, in hindsight, look disturbingly like our own.
