The Devil Delivered - Steven Erikson

A novella. Introduction by Paul McAuley.

Mind the Hole.

In a world of ozone depletion, toxic deadzones, internicine brew-ups and lifeless oceans, nothing has changed. Or so it seems, but in the break-away Lakota Nation, in the heart of a land blistered beneath an ozone hole the size of the Great Plains of North America, something is happening.

Tracked by a growing global audience of online subversives and electronic muckers, a lone anthropologist wanders the deadlands, recording observations that threaten to bring the world's powers to their knees.

Past and future; restless ghosts and rogue corporations; rad-shielded cities and unprotected peripheral populations; all now face each other, across a chasm once wide but growing ever narrower.

Mother Earth is poisoned beyond any hope of resuscitation. Humanity beyond any hope of redemption – but one last lesson of life awaits...

When Nature starts losing the game, Nature changes the rules. We've turned paradise into Hell, and in Hell, the Devil Delivers...
