The Dervish House in The New York Times AND The Washington Post

"Written with care and intelligence..."
Ian McDonald's The Dervish House is creating a splash. The New York Times calls the work "ambitious," and says that it is "an audacious look at the shift in the power centers of the world and an intense vision of one possible future."

Meanwhile, The Washington Post is even more positive, saying, "Written with care and intelligence, The Dervish House whirls along at a heady pace but still manages to give a deep sense of another place that would be great to visit -- so long as you didn't have to live there"

It's a fantastic book. Nice to see it getting reviews in respected newspapers. Hope this expands its readership beyond the science fiction crowd.
