Next week, Ian McDonald’s RIVER OF GODS becomes a Masterwork!

… ok, we already think it’s a masterwork, but Ian McDonald‘s RIVER OF GODS is published next week (March 19th) by Gollancz in a new, SF Masterworks edition! The first novel in Ian’s India 2047 series, here’s the synopsis…

August 15th, 2047. Happy Hundredth Birthday, India … On the eve of Mother India’s hundredth birthday, ten people are doing ten very different things. In the next few weeks, all these people will be swept together to decide the fate of the nation. From gangsters to government advisors, from superstitious street-boys to scientists to computer-generated soap stars, River of Gods shows a civilization in flux – a river of gods.

RIVER OF GODS is an epic SF novel as sprawling, vibrant and colourful as the sub-continent it describes. This is an SF novel that blew apart the narrow anglo and US-centric concerns of the genre and ushered in a new global consciousness for the genre.

Gollancz also publishes the second novel in the duology, CYBERABAD DAYS, as well as Ian’s latest series Luna, in the UK.

The India 2047 novels are published in North America by JABberwocky.

The Luna series is published in North America by Tor Books.
