Ian McDonald The Dervish House

A new SF epic from a modern master of the genre The Dervish House centres on Istanbul in 2025. Turkey has always been a nation with an ambivalent relationship with Europe; it is a country that looks to the West, which had greatness in the past and which may seize it again in the future. The Dervish House is the story of the families that live in and around its titular house. It is at once a rich mosaic of Islamic life in the new century, and a telling novel of future possibilities. Ian McDonald is the author of the groundbreaking Chaga books set in Africa, as well as the awardwinning River of Gods. He lives in Holywood, County Down.
