The Star Fraction
Reviewed November 2000 This is the first of MacLeod's four novels in his future history of anarchic states; it's followed by The Stone Canal The Cassini Division , and The Sky Road . As I write this, The Star Fraction has not yet been printed domestically, so it's the last of those four novels that I've read. In the near future - perhaps around 2040 or so - the world is reeling from a series of wars and skirmishes. Britain, in particular, has been partitioned into a number of city-states governed by various factions. Mercenary groups augment private institutions for security purposes, and revolutionary groups' private armies. Moh Kohn is just such a mercenary, toting a near-intelligent gun in his work. One night he gets involved in a raid on a university where he stops and captures Cat, an old girlfriend. They bear grudges against one another, and Moh refuses to ransom her, marking her as persona non grata among the mercenaries. He then meets Janis Taine, a biological researcher at the university investigating memory drugs. A US/UN group called Stasis send "men in black" to order her to stop her research, and she contracts Moh to guard her as they leave the area for Norlonto.

Research Interests
Ken MacLeod's research efforts are directed toward better understanding relationships between the distribution of fossil organisms and variations in paleoclimate/paleoceanography across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. Current projects include examination of Late Cretaceous paleoceanography and the Cretaceous/Tertiary (K/T) boundary, the Permian/Triassic (P/T) boundary, and influences on the distribution of rare earth elements (REE) in hemipelagic sediments. Cretaceous projects focus on the extinction of inoceramid bivalves and the ecology of planktic foraminifera in relation to deteriorating Cretaceous greenhouse climate conditions and to the putative K/T asteroid impact. In addition to fossil data; oxygen, carbon, and strontium isotopes are used to assess changing paleoenvironmental conditions and to test the fidelity of the stratigraphic record. Exciting recent results show that the subtropical Atlantic was warming while mid- to high latitudes cooled and suggest demonstrable links among climate, continental weathering, oceanic productivity, and foraminiferal assemblages. The P/T boundary work concerns the timing and tempo of faunal turnover among terrestrial vertebrates in South Africa. Carbon isotopic results suggest that extinctions among therapsids in the interior of Pangea were synchronous with extinctions in the shallow marine of China and coastal regions of Australia. More importantly, our data show that the event was rapid, but not instantaneous. This rate of change argues against several potential causal mechanisms commonly invoked to explain the P/T event.

Critical essay about Science Fiction written by ken macleod.
Science Fiction after the Future Went Away
a feature by Ken MacLeod William Gibson, one of the best current science fiction writers, has recently said: 'The best SF of the Nineties is on CNN. Hard to beat that garbage-module slamming into space station Mir!' And indeed the cooperation between Russia and the West on the Mir space station may be the perfect symbol for the present state of affairs: actually existing capitalism relying for its life-support on the clapped-out projects of formerly-existing socialism, lurching from one crisis to another and going around in circles. What happens to SF when the future goes dark? To answer that question we need to look back to when the future seemed bright. The past of SF as a self-conscious, largely American-centred genre can be mapped fairly closely to social developments. What the SF critic John Clute has aptly called 'Agenda SF' flourished roughly from the 1920s to the late 1950s. Although inevitably tracking the vicissitudes of boom, slump, world war and Cold War; including much of counter-current, query, and dissent; and encompassing many developments of literary style and scientific/technological speculation, Agenda SF retained its coherence as an ongoing projection of humanity's - and capitalism's - advance. The consensus stages of this Future History included first the exploration, then the colonization, of the solar system; the launching of gigantic 'interstellar arks', with generations living and dying en route to Alpha Centauri; until some future Edison/Einstein cracked the intractable problem of the light-speed limit, and opened the way to the stars. A great explosion of human pioneers would swarm across the galaxy, and be eventually unified into an Empire which would, inevitably, Decline and Fall ... and beyond this Fall, new heights would rise.

I first learned about Ken MacLeod at Intersection, the WorldCon in Glasgow in 1995. The Star Fraction had just been released to great critical acclaim. What caught my eye, though, was the fact that it the publishers Random House had issued it under the Legend imprint in a £10 hardback edition rather unusual. (I also seem to remember Peter Hamilton and Ken MacLeod on a panel together discussing politics and dystopias, but maybe that's just a figment of my imagination.) I didn't buy the book at the time, but it did go onto my "get it in paperback" list. I did eventually buy it at the start of 1998, and immediately regretted not having got it sooner. In it, MacLeod spins off ideas like a catherine wheel, showering the reader with sparks of imagination that could light up a dozen other books. After finishing The Stone Canal in paperback, I gave up on just reading his books, and started actively collecting them. I bought The Cassini Division in hardback, and tracked down first edition copies of

interviewed by
Duncan Lawie
"DotCommunism is an interesting phenomenon.
I think that we are genuinely running up against certain limits to the idea of property as applied to intellectual property." "I don't believe in the UFO mythology but I find it fascinating. Episodically, I find it fascinating." In the late 1990s, Ken MacLeod rapidly carved out a reputation for a highly politicised perspective on science fiction. His first four novels - The Star Fraction The Stone Canal The Cassini Division , and The Sky Road - writhe with political and technological opportunities and alternatives available to us in the 21st century and beyond. Known as The Fall Revolution , the books inform each other, but form a collective rather than a sequence - rarely sharing major characters and at times in active conflict with each other on what will happen in the next century or two. Though often considered in Britain to have a fairly left-wing stance, two of these books won the Prometheus Award for Libertarian Fiction - before their US publication. Almost as obvious as his knowledge of politics is the familiarity with Scotland in his books. MacLeod was born in the Hebrides and went to high school and university in south west Scotland. He subsequently spent over a decade in London before returning north in 1990 with his family to reside in Edinburgh. Though he moved to London for postgraduate study, he made the transition from scientist to computer programmer during his time there. The influence of this career is apparent in his work also, in his application of geek ideology and methodology as well as comprehension of the technology and its challenges.

Your browser does not support script advertise search EUROPE'S MOST VISITED SF/F WEB SITE Ken MacLeod interviewed Scottish SF author Ken MacLeod may be a best buddy with Iain Banks, but he's now been firmly established as a rising star in the science fiction firmament in his right. He chats with Stephen Hunt about why he's trying to find time to read Perdido Street Station, his new book, Engine City, and why most of the futures are capitalist … but they're terrifying! Are you currently writing full time now, or are you still fitting in the odd day-job? KM. I 've been writing full-time since the beginning of 1997. When and why did you begin writing? When did you first consider yourself a writer? KM. I started writing fiction almost as soon as I discovered SF, in my early teens, and wrote some terrible short stories and made lots of plans and notes for novels, none of which I wrote. But the notes, the ideas, the characters and even some of the titles turned out to be usable later. I didn't actually consider myself a writer until The Star Fraction got accepted.

396 pages From the back cover of the US edition: Matt Cairns is a 21st century outlaw programmer who takes on the shady jobs no one else will touch. Against his better judgment, he accepts an assignment to crack the Marshall Titov , a top secret orbital station operated by the European Space Agency. But what Matt will discover there will propel him on an extraordinary and quite unexpected journey. Gregor Cairns is an exobiology student and descendant of one of Terra Nova's first families. Hopelessly infatuated with a lovely young trader's daughter, he is unaware that his research partner, Elizabeth, has fallen in love with him. Together, Gregor and Elizabeth confront the great work his family began three centuries earlier to rediscover the secret of interstellar travel.

20. MacLeod, Ken
Cosmonaut Keep , by ken macleod. ISBN 184149-067-9. I had meant to review The SkyRoad next, ken macleod's alternate history to the two books reviewed below.
The Hallway The Library The Gallery The Music Room ... The Links "Cosmonaut Keep", by Ken MacLeod Orbit, UK paperback, 2001 (© 2000), £6.99, 385 pages. ISBN 1-84149-067-9 I had meant to review "The Sky Road" next, Ken Macleod's alternate history to the two books reviewed below. Unfortunately, owing to the rather long hiatus in my activities on this site, it's now some 7 or 8 months since I read it, and no longer fresh enough in my mind to give a reasonable review. Let's just say it was a jolly good book, and well-recommended. So now we come to "Cosmonaut Keep", first in a new series, "Engines of Light". Turn down the politics a little, and set interstellar adventure to 11! Well, not quite. Like a lot of recent SF, this book seems to be taking a crack at the Fermi paradox (see also, for instance, Stephen Baxter's "Time" and "Space", which I should also be reviewing shortly). For the uninitiated, the Fermi paradox goes back to a remark made by physicist Enrico Fermi more than 50 years ago - if there are alien civilisations out there, "Where are they?". The universe is old enough for many civilisations to have evolved by now, to levels well above ours, and while travel to the stars is not easy, we can conceive of methods not so very greatly advanced beyond our current level of technology, so that it is reasonable to suppose that the entire galaxy, including our own star system should have been colonised many times over by now. The interstellair airwaves should be abuzz with their messages, the wakes of their stardrives visible across the sky, the glow of their Dyson spheres shining in the infra-red, the stars and galaxies themselves altered by cosmic engineering perhaps. But we see nothing of this.
