"A Tom Doherty Associates book."
A tale set at the end of the twenty-first century finds the planet's divided hominid population subjected to the forces of a splintery metaconsciousness that inundates networks with plans for cataclysmic technologies, prompting an unwitting jury member to participate in a grueling decision.
While I enjoyed the book, others see it as a sprawling, disorganized story, which may be a stylistic method to reflect Huw's ever changing and extremely diverse society. This may also be because the novel is a mélange of two novellas by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross, "Jury Duty" and "Appeals Court", with a third and newer section, "Parole Board" added to it.
