Dance for the Ivory Madonna, by Don Sakers

Posted: June 5, 2003 at 11:39 pm in scifi

This is a pretty standard sci-fi book, picked up randomly from the new book section of the library mostly because of the review on the back from Melissa Scott (whose work I like): “Imagine a Stand on Zanzibar written by a left-wing Robert Heinlein, and infused with the most exciting possibilities of the new cyber-technology”. Near future, AI presence, virtual reality, crazy diseases, etc. Some interesting speculations on which directions things might go. Nothing too spectacular, though.

I love my Trek Domane 4.7c bike. And I write about how it makes me feel powerful. nehrlich.com/blog/2015/03/2…
