Science Fiction Chronicle

Abstract:
THE DERVISH HOUSE
By Ian McDonald.
Pyr/Prometheus, $26.

Having written novels set in a future Brazil and a future India, McDonald now tackles Istanbul circa 2027 in this ambitious, harrowing, sometimes frustrating science fiction thriller.

The almost magical nature of the advanced nanotechnology on display also proves problematic, raising the question of why McDonald set his story less than 20 years in the future. Still, "The Dervish House" is an audacious look at the shift in the power centers of the world and an intense vision of one possible future.
