Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Moh Kohn is a security mercenary, his smart gun and killer reflexes for hire. Janis Taine is a scientist working on memory-enhancing drugs, fleeing the US/UN's technology cops. Jordan Brown is a teenager in the Christian enclave of Beulah City, dealing in theologically-correct software for the world's fundamentalists-and wants out.

In a balkanized twenty-first century, where the "peace process" is deadlier than war, the US/UN's spy satellites have everyone in their sights. But the Watchmaker has other plans, and the lives of Moh, Janis, and Jordan are part of the program. A specter is haunting the fight for space and freedom, the specter of the betrayed revolution that happened before. . . .

With The Star Fraction, Ken MacLeod burst onto the SF scene and began the Fall Revolution sequence that continued with The Stone Canal, The Cassini Division, and The Sky Road.

Synopsis:

Britain in the 21 st century is a Balkanized mess with an absentee-landlord Hanoverian royal family, neighborhoods that pursue their own independent foreign policies, and US/UN technology cops with everyone in their sights. Moh Kohn is a security mercenary unaware that he holds the key to information which could change the world. Janis Taine is a scientist who needs Moh's help hiding from the US/UN. Jordan Brown is a teenaged refugee from an enclave of religious fundamentalists. And a rogue computer program is guiding events to a breathtaking conclusion, with strange and wonderful implications for the human future.
