Review

Imagine a future where faster than light travel is not controlled by liberal boffins but by Glasgow neds. Humanity has slowly fled Earth and mapped its divisions on the cosmos, leaving behind a Glasgow family that discover a skein of wormholes. MacLeod is a formidable imagineer, whose politically savvy sci-fi constantly stretches our assumptions about the future, with wit and sting. -- Stuart Kelly
