In a balkanized future of dizzying possibilities, mercenaries contend with guns as smart as they are, nuclear deterrence is a commodity traded on the open market, teenagers deal in "theologically correct" software for fundamentalists, and anarchists have colonized a planet circling another star. Against this background, men and women struggle for a better future against the betrayals that went before. Death is sometimes the end, and sometimes something altogether different... This volume comprises The Star Fraction and The Stone Canal .

Macleod's fall revolution series is a fast-paced romp through a very plausible, not-too-distant future. His work is sophisticated look at a world of advanced artificial intelligence and what that holds for humanity. A great example of hard SF.

A favorite of sci fi fans with political sensibilities, Scottish author Ken Macleod offers smart, fast-moving fiction infused with socialist, utopian, dystopian, anarchist, and Trotskyist ideas. One particularly cool device in this series is Moh Kohn’s artificially intelligent Gun.

This is a very interesting book and not a fast read. Considering this,perhaps you might consider getting a few more copies...I feel a bit badly that mine is overdue, but I cannot return till finished, hopefully by tomorrow!
