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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Brasyl is classic McDonald: a deep thinking, high-paced adventure story, exploring the quantumn universe, combining sassy, believeable characters with a captivating delight in language and storytelling. Mcdonald inhabits the Brazil - or rather, the Brazils - of this world and sweeps you along as no other writer in the field could manage. - Keith Brooke, THE GUARDIAN

A beautiful story, one that cries out to be read again and again. McDonald's light is still shining brightly, and considering the consistent quality of his titles, we say long may it burn. - James Rundle, SCIFI NOW

This is a big, sprawling, sexy, complex novel. The writing is energetic and economical, the story riveting, the denouement fascinating. An ambitious and riveting SF epic. - DREAMWATCH TOTAL SCI-FI
