A deeply intricate world, with all the elements of a great science fiction / fantasy epic condensed into a single novel. Excellent characters and world-building. A great read!

On the watery planet Tiamat, a variety of self-interested cultures inhabit its decadent city Carbuncle. Thoughtful characters struggle internally and with each other. There is no warfare but there is plenty of adventure. Themes of traditional stories are interwoven with sci fi and contemporary elements to create a colorful tale for grown-ups. Joan D. Vinge's creation is marvelously complex and fluidly rendered.

Very good book! Lot of female characters in it.
