Just starting yet another cyber punk novel. When Gravity Fails by George Alec Effinger. So far it’s seriously gritty and dark. It’s going to be a great read! Plus it’s a series of three books.
“Taking place in a futuristic Middle-Eastern setting, the series reverses some of the usual expectations of a future world order by painting the West in decline while Muslim countries seem to prosper. The book’s other main themes are the effects of drug use and alternate personality technologies, as well as the personal interactions and increasing isolation of a flawed protagonist.” from Wikipedia.
