Already noted in the US Books Received column in our September issue, this Pyr edition of Justina Robson's Mappa Mundi has made the long journey over the Atlantic, to arrive in my mailbox. I originally reviewed this novel when it was first published here in the UK by Macmillan back in late 2001 - see here - and remember admiring the ideas, but not really being able to engage with the heart of the story, largely because it didn't seem to have one. Robson's subsequent work has impressed much more, most notably her most recent work, Keeping it Real .
