Ian Macdonald's RIVER OF GODS, painted a vivid picture of a near future India, 100 years after independence.
It revolutionised British SF for a new generation by taking a perspective that was not European or American.
BRASYL will do the same for South America's largest and most vibrant country. A story that begins in the favelas, the slums of Rio, and quickly expands to take in drugs, corruption, and a frightening new technology that allows access to all the multiple worlds that have slipped into existence in other planes everytime we make a decision. This is rich, epic SF that opens our eyes to the world around us and posits mind-blowing alternative sciences.
It is a landmark work in modern SF from one of its most respected practitioners.
