Mappa Mundi

by Justina Robson
Release date: 2001
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Arthur C. Clarke Award Best Novel nominee 2002. An novel of hard SF exploring the nature of identity both inherited and engineered. In the near future, when medical nanotechnology has made it possible to map a model of the living human brain, radical psychologist Natalie Armstrong sees her work suddenly become crucial to a cutting-edge military project for creating comprehensive mind-control. On the other side of the Atlantic, Jude Westhorpe, FBI specialist, is tracking a cold war defector long involved in everything from gene sequencing to mind-mapping. But his investigation has begun to affect matters of national security — throwing Jude and Natalie together as partners in trouble. Deep trouble from every direction. This fascinating novel explores the nature of humanity in the near future, and how technologies can develop whose power and potential demand that we adapt ourselves to their existence — whatever the price.
