Brasyl

Genre: Fiction, Sci-fi and Fantasy; Author: Ian McDonald; Status: In Season; Publisher: Pyr

A modern reality TV producer, an aspiring mogul from a seedy near-future hood, an 18th-century Jesuit missionary, and other assorted Brazilians uncover a vast conspiracy involving quantum physics and parallel realities in Ian McDonald’s Brasyl.

For Fans of…
Philip K. Dick’s paranoid philosophizing; City of God’s urban squalor.

Bottom Line
Packing his pages with local color and big-picture speculation, McDonald conjures three equally vivid worlds. B+
