The world: 'Cyberabad' is the India of 2047, a new, muscular superpower of one and a half billion people in an age of artificial intelligences, climate-change induced drought, water-wars, strange new genders, genetically improved children that age at half the rate of baseline humanity and a population where males out-number females four to one. India herself has fractured into a dozen states from Kerala to the headwaters of the Ganges in the Himalayas.

    "Brilliant performance"

    A wonderful followup for this series, and absolutely brilliantly performed. Consists of some short stories and novellas connecting to the story in the first book of the series.
