One sleepless night later the novel had been devoured.
Justin A. Bacon
The plot is a catchy one, and makes you wonder so much "what's going to happen?" that it's hard not to read on.
"justanotherface"
A woman as the protagonist and narrator operating in and unstable city on an unstable world!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is more than a combination of thriller and "hard"SF. It is a true novel, a major piece of literary SF that should have received the Hugo or the Nebula or both. Unfortunately, the author is known as a creator of fantasy, so this gem has not received the attention it should have. It is a most readable work of art, never leaving a chance for a yawn. But it is also a complex work, which gives away more after a second or third reading.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A planet in terminal orbit, one side searing hot, the other frozen. On the fringe between the two stands Nightside city. In this erie cyberpunk tale, a detective rubs elbows with all sorts of low-lifes in a quest to determine whether Nightside city will soon see the light of day...and who's behind it. Masterfully presented with wonderful descriptions, great dialog, and visionary descriptions of future technology. Evans makes it all come alive.

I've been meaning to give Lawrence Watt-Evans a try for a long time. Last week the stars finally conjoined in such a way that I found myself with a copy of NIGHTSIDE CITY clenched between my fists.
One sleepless night later the novel had been devoured.
This book stands somewhere inbetween NEUROMANCER and SNOW CRASH, and deserves to be as well-known as both. Lawrence Watt-Evans crafts a riveting tale which is one-half cyberpunk and one-half detective noir, with strong dashes of hard SF sensibility, insightful characterization, and tight plotting thrown into the mix.

Speculative Fiction Private Eye can't be easy to write well, especially if it is also cyberpunk. Lawrence Watt-Evans nailed this, and I'm sorry I hadn't heard of this 20 years ago.

Imagine if Larry Niven, William Gibson, and Glen Cook had been tasked with writing this book and had been blessed with an editor who managed to force them to keep things simple - yet elegant. Then read this book.

More About the Author

I've been writing fantasy for more than thirty years... well, my fantasy's been published for more than thirty years. I've been writing it since I was eight. It's what I always wanted to do for a living, and I've been very fortunate in that I've been able to manage that. I try to write fantasy with an element of common sense to it -- not so much mythic archetypes as sensible people.

Other than my job, my life's pretty ordinary -- a nice house in a quiet neighborhood, a wife, two grown kids, and a cat.
