Bruce Sterling offers a brilliant new frame of reference for science fiction-the voice of women (cloned no less, but still each of them all woman). And as Sterling is science fictions incarnation of Jane Austen, we have a very perceptive author at work.
The narrative's starting point - what would happen if a woman in modern times decided to bring by forming an empire. Many men have done this throughout history and now we see a feminine take. Many layers of ideas, life styles, human use of earth and space make this an spellbinding listen.
Jay Snyder's reading is amazing and helps greatly the listener more easily understand the story.
