Praise
"In CYBERABAD DAYS...McDonald performs the quintessential science fictional magic trick: imagining massive technological change and making it intensely personal by telling the stories of real, vividly realized people who leap off the page and into our minds. And he does this with a deft prose that is half-poetic, conjuring up the rhythms and taste and smells of his places and people..."
From the Publisher
Annotation In the seven stories collected here, award-winning SF writer Ian McDonald fleshes out the imagined future that he opened up in his 2006 RIVER OF GODS. The place is India. The time is 2047. The world is one of genetic "improvements," water scarcity, and artificial intelligence. But ageless concerns--love, war, sex, spirituality--underlie all the personal and political conflicts in which technology is always a major player.
Editors Note Presents a collection of seven stories that explore the India of 2047, including "The Little Goddess," about a former deity who is lost in a strange new world, and "The Djinn's Wife," about a woman who falls in love with an AI.
