Born in the tiny nation of Krassnia, part of the former Soviet Union, Lucy Stone now lives in Edinburgh, where she designs video games for a living. Her mother, a CIA operative, asks Lucy to create a massively multiplayer role-playing game based on Krassnian folklore that will provide Krassnian rebel groups with a covert online channel for communicating with one another. As Lucy conducts research, she learns more about her family's longstanding involvement in the troubled region's history and politics. This witty, detailed blend of science fiction and espionage may appeal to fans of Nick Harkaway's Angelmaker.

A really good science fiction story. I read it in an evening and enjoyed it a lot. Good characterization, a nice spy thriller element as well (realistic, more LeCarre than James Bond), and some interesting takes on what you might expection from an sf plot involving RPGs.
