Vacuum Flowers is a grand tour of the inhabited Solar System set in a medium term future The book opens in Eros Kluster one of many asteroid based settlements that form the bulk of Human space after all of humanity on Earth was absorbed into the Comprise a world wide AI and net mediated group mind The Klusters are frontier capitalist polities or less with advanced biotech and neuro engineering most people spend their workday wetware programmed by their employer a reversible process There is umm potential for abuse and Swanwick has fun exploring the conseuences of this technology For example a police raid wouldn t reuire many police temp deputies could be imprinted on the spotPeople s Mars an unappealing collectivist state based on classical Sparta is nonetheless making good progress terraforming Mars The cislunar settlements a no man s land between Humanity and the Comprise are the dark anarchic Mean Streets And the remote Dyson settlements in the Oort are bucolic biophile semi utopias offstage Swanwick notes that he tried to display a range of plausible governmental systems throughout the System all of them flawed the way that governments are in the real world Nicely done one of the highlights of Vacuum FlowersOh and the Flowers are pretty little plants engineered to live in the vacuum eat garbage that have become a weedy nuisance another nice touch Swanwick is surprisingly one of the few SF authors who ve borrowed Freeman Dyson s remarkable biotech space settlement ideas Dyson is an extraordinarily inventive and graceful scientist writer and I seldom miss a chance to recommend his books see my review of Dyson s The Sun the Genome and the Internet was Swanwick s second novel and first really successful one Despite some rough spots notably the cyberpunkish opening Vacuum Flowers remains an exemplary modern space opera one of the best in the extraordinary reinvention of my favorite subgenre during the past two decades I ve now read VF three times 1987 1993 2000 and I expect to enjoy it again in 2007 or so Highly recommended

What a ride I ve read a smattering of short storiesof note the absolutely menacing The Very Pulse of the Machineso unsettling by Swanwick which people claim are his strength but that seems dismissive of his novelsand on completing my first oneI think he might be dynamite novelist one of our best Called cyberpunk or space opera but really this is indescribable a full on plunge into white hot imagination and political outrage tackling ideas of identitymost characters have severalgovermenta satire of nearly all goverment hypocrisy of human pastpresent and futurereality and the other essential messes of life Humor terrific charactersscary speculation on technology and full sense of wonder also the weirdest Wizard of OZ allusion I have ever read an extra point for including Kobo Abe in the great lost works of literature of Earthdon t askthere seems to be about hundred idea per page in this book Swanwick may be a match for his heroes Gene Wolfe and Pynchon if the rest of his oeuvre it eual to this book Also star trek s the borg and the matrix owe him royalties and an apology for simplifying his ideas with their hollywood morality
