is an alternate history novel by Bruce Sterling, an author and editor who helped define the cyberpunk genre. I was very excited to see this title. Despite my love of cyberpunk, it was the term pirate that had me hooked. Add in the alternate history and cool cover I was sold.[/drocap]

It’s a fun story with what is possibly the longest title that I ever have (and maybe ever will) come across.
But what, exactly, is it about?
