Appleseed. John Clute.


Orbit/Little Brown:
London: 2001
First edition, Hardcover, Fine in Fine dust jacket,
335 pp.

I’ve admired Clute for years. He’s my favorite critic. I’ve found his assessments of science fiction to be incisive and accurate . . . almost always. Well I’ll be damned - he’s written a novel of his own. He knows so much about what goes into making a good story, one has to believe that his own story would embody the best of these elements. Stephen Baxter, Joe Haldeman and M. John Harrison all think highly of this new novel. It’s the story of a trader who accepts what he believes to be a reasonable commission: to deliver a shipment of nanoforges to the planet Eolhxir. When a data plague begins to infect all of civilization he learns that his commission is far from normal and could very well be devastating. Trust John Clute. . . he should know. #12764
