LoveReading View on The Dervish House

Istanbul 2025, a new member of the EU is the imagined place for this epic, complex and intelligent character driven Sci-Fi novel. Old religions combine with nano technology for the residents of a dilapidated block of flats. It portrays a rich mosaic of Islamic life in the new century and is a telling novel of future possibilities.

The Dervish House Synopsis

In the CHAGA novels Ian McDonald brought an Africa in the grip of a bizarre alien invasion to life, in RIVER OF GODS he painted a rich portrait of India in 2047, in BRASYL he looked at different Brazils, past present and future. Ian McDonald has found renown at the cutting edge of a movement to take SF away from its British and American white roots and out into the rich cultures of the world. THE DERVISH HOUSE continues that journey and centres on Istanbul in 2025. Turkey is part of Europe but sited on the edge, it is an Islamic country that looks to the West.
