FictionProps: Ken MacLeod


Ken Macleod, author of some of the best political science fiction of the last decade, has a new "short short" story in Nature magazine. Check out "Undead again". It's not his usual fare, but it's great.

I highly recommend MacLeod's "Fall Revolution" cycle. It's very political and deals in a lot of libertarian (of both the "anarcho-capitalist" and socialist type) issues. It's also just great reading: The Star Fraction, The Stone Canal, The Cassini Division and The Sky Road. The four novels don't have to be read in any particular order, but the order listed is probably the most coherent. They all stand alone well. See also his "Engines of Light" cycle -- I haven't had time to dig entirely into that one, but the first book was quite good.
