Au­thor: Ken MacLeod Pub­lisher: Or­bit The so­cial­ist au­thor tries his hand at “near- fu­ture bloke- lit” in this tale set in an in­de­pen­dent Scot­land. It cen­tres on the para­noid Ryan, an ab­ductee who, years on from a teenage en­counter with a fly­ing saucer, be­comes con­vinced that he’s caught up in a vast con­spir­acy. We said: “A big- hearted, richly comic and, for all it of­ten plays scenes for laughs, deeply moral and se­ri­ous novel.”
