Welcome to the Scattered Pearls Belt, a collection of ring habitats and orbitals ruled by exiled human scholars and powerful families, and held together by living mindships who carry people and freight between the stars. In this fluid society, human and mindship avatars mingle in corridors and in function rooms, and physical and virtual realities overlap, the appareance of environments easily modified and adapted to interlocutors or current mood. A transport ship discharged from military service after a traumatic injury, The Shadow’s Child now ekes out a precarious living as a brewer of mind-altering drugs for the comfort of space-travellers.
Aliette de Bodard ist eine französisch-amerikanische Autorin, die in Paris lebt und auf Englisch vielfach hochgelobte und preisgekrönte Fantasy und Science-Fiction verfasst. “It is not often you come across a twist big enough to be all but original but this book does. It is described as gender bent Sherlock Holmes in space and Watson is a former military space ship and it lives up to all of that. But the culture is so much greater than that.” (Leser) (52 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 96 Seiten noch günstig?
