Book of the Month September 2011

Another difficult month to choose the Book of the Month but in the end it just had to be Ian McDonald's novel The Dervish House.

The novel is set in a future Istanbul and tells the tale of the complex lives of several characters that all reside in the titular abode.

It's an incredible novel of infinite depth and really does deserve to be a part of any science fiction fans collection. It's also been nominated for just about every major award and hasso far won the John W Campbell and the BSFA award.
