US cover art for Ian McDonald's THE DERVISH HOUSE


Pyr recently unveiled the cover art for the forthcoming The Dervish House by Ian McDonald, and it's another beauty by Stephan Martiniere!=) For more info about this title: USA, Europe.

Here's a short blurb:

In the sleepy Istanbul district of Eskiköy stands the former whirling dervish house of Adem Dede.

Over the space of five days of an Istanbul heatwave, six lives weave a story of corporate wheeling and dealing, Islamic mysticism, political and economic intrigue, ancient Ottoman mysteries, a terrifying new terrorist threat, and a nanotechnology with the potential to transform every human on the planet.

Well, with this novel and the new Kay Kenyon and David Louis Edelman books coming out next year, they account for three of my most eagerly anticipated SFF titles for 2010! Lou Anders' diabolical plan to take over the genre has begun. . .

If you haven't read anything by Ian McDonald yet, don't sweat it and rejoice! Indeed, you have some terrific reading ahead of you! Check out his novels:

- River of Gods (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Brasyl (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Cyberabad Days (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Desolation Road (Canada, USA, Europe)

Desolation Road is still awaiting my attention, but the other three rank among the best science fiction books I've read since I created this blog in 2005. . . Special thanks to Stego for turning me on to River of Gods!

Great to see another book from this master! I just loved River of Gods. One of the best (SF) novels I've read, I hope this one can rival RoG.

Hmm... I'm from Turkey and this book definitely tickles my curiosity. I'd love to read it. I wish I could get a review copy or something like that...
