An author I found by luck while writing the post on Zelazny, some… err… contemporary fantastic fiction ?

The Merchant Princess (Family Trade- The Hidden Family – The Clan Corporate) : If you liked the Princes of Ambre and their familial quarrels, temporal irregularities, etc, then you will love Stross. His characters have no special powers except the capacity to travel between different worlds, but Miriam, the heroin, still suceed in getting money out of that (and out of her formation as an investigation journalist), without using drugs contrarly to some members of her family. Except that many members of the said family trie to kill other people, near or in the family, and that the patriarch seems to be in deeper problems than he thinks.

Flattr this!
