Works[edit]

Novels[edit]

A science fiction version of Moby Dick, set in a deep crater filled with dust instead of water, featuring an impossible romance between the protagonist and an alien woman. The book was published as part of a series of books by new authors discovered by Harlan Ellison and was marketed as such.
A novel about a young street fighter who continuously films himself using remote controlled cameras.
Nebula Award nominee, 1985;[1] British Science Fiction Association Award nominee, 1986[2]
The twenty third century solar system is divided among two human factions: the "Shapers" who are employing genetics and psychology, and the "Mechanists" who use computers and body prosthetics. The novel is narrated from the viewpoint of Abelard Lindsay, a brilliant diplomat who makes history many times throughout the story.
Campbell Award winner, 1989;[3] Hugo Award nominee, 1989;[3] Locus SF Award nominee, 1989[3]
A view of an early twenty first century world apparently peaceful with delocalised, networking corporations. The protagonist, swept up in events beyond her control, finds herself in the places off the net, from a datahaven in Grenada, to a Singapore under terrorist attack, and the poorest and most disaster-struck part of Africa.
BSFA Award nominee, 1990;[4] Nebula Award nominee, 1991;[5] Campbell Award nominee, 1992[6]
A steampunk alternate history novel set in a Victorian Great Britain in the throes of a steam-driven computer revolution.

Set in a world of steadily increasing longevity (gerontocracy), a newly rejuvenated American woman drifts through the marginalised subculture of European young artists while dealing with the implications of posthumanism.

Locus SF Award nominee, 2001[11]
A girl group à la the Spice Girls tours the Middle East under the direction of trickster Leggy Starlitz. Explores a world in which postmodernism and deconstructionism were literally true in their postulation of reality as a malleable major consensus narrative.
A techno-thriller about a cyber-security expert who goes to work for the U.S. government fighting terrorism after 9/11.
Three women, clones of the widow of a Balkan war criminal living on a space station, may be able to rescue the Earth from environmental collapse in 2060.[12]
