This is the story Harry Ransom. If you know his name its most likely as the inventor of the Ransom Process, a stroke of genius that changed the world. If youre reading this in the future, Ransom City must be a great and glittering metropolis by now, with a big bronze statue of Harry Ransom in a park somewhere. You might be standing on its sidewalk and not wonder in the least of how it grew to its current glory. Well, here is its story, full of adventure and intrigue. And it all starts with the day that old Harry Ransom crossed paths with Liv Alverhyusen and John Creedmoor, two fugitives running from the Line, amidst a war with no end.

I read The Half-Made World a few years ago and really enjoyed it. If anything, The Rise of Ransom City is even better. The exploits of Harry Ransom and the agents of the Line and the Gun are fascinating, brilliantly written and wildly imaginative.

Good. Gilman tends to get pretty oblique at times, in a really good way, but not so in this book. Fun, funny and thought-provoking. Gilman lite.
