Selling Out (Gollancz . Justina Robson is a marvel. In 40 years of reading SF, very few authors have delighted me or kept me guessing about what was going to happen next as Robson.

She has filled her story with myth, legend, deep metaphysical exploration, gestalt psychology, scientific speculation and sweet sexuality without slowing down the roller coaster ride.

Lila replied, keeping to the facts. from an egg, Lila said. It isn’t a place? It’s everywhere, Lila said. Allow me, Tath whispered and Lila gave him control of her voice. Hell is a state of separation from god. Whoever is separated from god is in Hell, so wherever they go, there Hell is. It’s a religious thing then

Talk about Selling Out (Gollancz S.F.)


RuTGamer
KEEPING IT REAL introduced Otopia, formerly known as Earth, after the Quantum Bomb, formerly known as a particle accelerator in Texas, somehow blew out the borders between Otopia and several other worlds that, strangely enough, correspond pretty well to realms spoken of in ancient Earth myths and legends. Otopian Agent Lila Black, a bionic woman reconstructed in the aftermath of a nasty encounter with some elvish reactionaries in Alfheim, was sent out on her first mission, a mission that was supposed to be a simple matter of babysitting a rock-star elf. Instead, Lila found herself on a desperate mission, deep behind enemy lines, attempting to rescue a celebrity in distress and save the elves from themselves.

In SELLING OUT, Lila's handlers want her to travel to Demonia, world of the demons, in order to find out how Zal (the rock-star elf) managed to become part demon. She learns pretty quickly that he had to go through Hell, and pretty soon after that she learns where Hell is: you take it with you everywhere you go. SELLING OUT is mostly about Lila trying to figure out who she is, where she fits into the world, and how she can get out of her own personal Hell. And then there's Teazle, the demon assassin who attaches himself to Lila after she kills his brother; Zal, who has a really bad trip; Lila's parents, who take an even worse trip; Lila's sister Max, who gives her a hard time; and disembodied elf necromancer Tath, who has a number of wry observations to make.

After reading the mixed reviews of the first two books in this series, I was worried about their quality. I was pleased to find that both were creative, smart, and enjoyable. The first is more fun than the second, mainly because it is an introduction to a whole new world and a grand adventure to boot. The second is more introspective and more complicated, deepening our understanding of the protagonist and her universe. Both are worth reading.

I read the first book on the recommendation of another reviewer. I loved it. This one, not so much. For me the problem was that the relationships built in book #1 were scattered here. I also found the lack of plot coherence very frustrating. There were times I had no clue as to what was happening or why the action was so splintered. I hear book #3 is excellent so I shall soldier forth with that.

I did love the description of the demon realm; I thought that was layered and well imagined. I guess I just need my main characters of this series in the same room.

Justina Robson's "Selling Out," the second in her Quantum Gravity series, sends human-cyborg special agent Lila Black back into action. This time her clueless leader, Cara Delaware, dispatches her on a mission to the land of Demonia where, as you might well suppose, Demons dwell, and where or so Delaware hopes, Lila will learn more about the origins of the half-elf, half-demon Zal, who Lila bodyguarded in the first book in the series, "Keeping it Real," which absolutely must be read first.

Although Delaware has not prepared her well for the mission, Lila nevertheless manages to thwart an assassination attempt or two, acquires her very own imp, and continues to have the spirit of the elf Tath dwelling within her. Oh, and she reconnects with her sister Maxine.

And where is Zal all this time? Off on a mission to save Lila, who, well, wait and see.

Don't expect it to make much in the way of sense (I'll tip my hat to you if you can figure out what the business with the ship and the ghost-hunters is all about), because with every book she writes it becomes increasingly clear that Ms. Robson inhabits a universe all her own (which is far from a bad thing), but if you relax and enjoy the ride, you should have a grand time.

And there's always Ms. Robson's sly prose to admire. Here, Zal samples a drink: "it seemed to be rum and Coke, and that was old enough as a cocktail to be a ghostly item. He breathed over the aromatic liquid and then hesitated, tired, euphoric, thirsty. "Can I drink this without turning into a ... thing? Or getting stuck here for eternity?"

" `Probably not,' the Ereba said."

Does that intrigue?

I have just finished the first three Quantum Gravity books and I have pre-ordered the fourth. Justina Robson is a marvel. In 40 years of reading SF, very few authors have delighted me or kept me guessing about what was going to happen next as Robson.

Robson hasn't so much blended SF and fantasy tropes as she's smashed them together in a supercollider. She has filled her story with myth, legend, deep metaphysical exploration, gestalt psychology, scientific speculation and sweet sexuality without slowing down the roller coaster ride.

This book is a lot of fun. You have to read it with a techie heart and an open mind. I love the main heroine. The story is unique and totally out there. Not your typical romance novel, but that is what makes it one of my favorites. Need to read it more than once and in order or you will be lost.
Hang on tight and enjoy the ride!

I have read all of these and I a number of things about the books, like the building of the hero and how it seams to me at least the hero's are who they are because of chance as well as love and work.

I loved "Selling Out". There's enough originality I'm sure no two readers would mentally picture scenes the same way. For most writers, that's poor prose. For Robson, it's like finger painting with primary colors. You "get" the richness of each environment, character, and action without slogging thru Tolkein-esque extended description. It zips along quickly for the first two-thirds. The final act feels a bit long, but there's a lot to tell.

It's fun and compelling, the characters are engaging, and it is a definite palatte cleanser from and particular genre. Highly recommmended!
a very good book it come on time and arrival was the day it said it would come thanks i love it
