Terrible Worlds: Revolutions
The Future Is Oppression.
Scions, sonko, landlords: whatever you call them, they're the super rich, the princes of capitalism, living off the labour - and the deaths - of the swarming masses and all too happy to see the world burn to preserve their luxurious lives.
In three critically-acclaimed novellas, the "British master of science fiction" (Tor.com) takes you down into the mud and horror of a future battlefield, into the dust and burning heat of a scorched equator, into the grinding poverty of a newly-feudal village, with the folk who give their lives every day in the service of undeserving masters... and sows the seed of revolution.
Collecting Tchaikovsky's critically acclaimed novellas Ironclads (2017), Firewalkers (2020) and Ogres (2022) for the first time, Terrible Worlds: Revolutions gives you three glimpses of hope for a better future.
