"A novel with one foot in the future"
I love this tag line - and it's perfectly suited to this novel by one of SF's cast-iron masters of the craft. Vernor Vinge's 2006 novel Rainbow's End gets a UK release by Tor, who publish it this month as a paperback original.
"In the grand tradition of William Gibson and Neal Stephenson, Vernor Vinge just turned the future upside-down in Rainbow's End" -- Charles Stross.
