In The Menace from Farside, Ian McDonald returns to his elegantly wound solar system of the twenty-second century, full of political intrigue and complicated families.
Remember: Lady Luna knows a thousand ways to kill you, but family is what you know. Family is what works.
Cariad Corcoran has a new sister who is everything she is not: tall, beautiful, confident. They're unlikely allies and even unlikelier sisters, but they're determined to find the moon's first footprint, even if the lunar frontier is doing its best to kill them before they get there. Praise for Ian McDonald's Luna series
"McDonald's never written a bad novel, but Luna: New Moon
is a great one."--Cory Doctorow
With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one. --Los Angeles Review of Books
