I had written Bruce Sterling off as a relic of the cyberpunk era big mistake The wow factor is pretty big on this Mind mutating WTF idea per sentence science fiction with shades at time of Bester Triptree jr Delaney Barrington J Baileywho blurbs it William S Burroughs and Ballard Dense filled with absurd humor and grotesue surreal visions as human future and form breaks and cascades into increasing odd shapes I feel a little buzzed after finishing this This and a couple of short stories have put Sterling on my favorites list This book also had a profound influence on the books of Charles Stross and Alastair Reynolds the former taking the zany idea flinging and economic speculation and the latter the grim fractured weirdness

Ic training and artificial conditioningBoth factions are fighting to control the Schismatrix of humankindThe Shapers are losing the battle but Abelard Lindsay a failed and exiled Shaper diplomat isn't giving up Across the galaxy Lindsay moves. I read this due to a recommendation at the end of Alastair Reynolds' Galactic North I thought it was pretty good but definitely intellectually stimulating than entertaining He has some pretty fascinating ideas although the overall plot itself is a little lackluster Definitely worth reading if only to see some ancestral ideas that evolved their way into Reynolds' Revelation Space universe

I picked up this book because I couldn't remember it from the first time I had read it twenty years ago I needed a bathtub book one that I wouldn't mind if it fell in the water and I wanted to decide if I should keep it on my shelf or pass it on Within the first thirty pages I had dropped all my other books and was secretly heading off to my room to sneak in a few pagesI loved the way Sterling balanced almost overwhelming creativity with cool calm and precise prose I loved the way he balanced the inhuman stretch of time that the book covers almost 200 yhears with unexpected jumps forward in time which to kept the story fresh and new It must have been exhausting to write although it was a delight to read I understand why Sterling said he never wants to revisit this world and I guess I better get caught up on what he has been doing since this novel
