The Human Front
By

Rating
Winner of a Prometheus and Sidewise Award, The Human Front follows the adventures of a young Scottish guerrilla drawn into low-intensity sectarian war in a high-intensity future, when the arrival of an alien intruder calls for new tactics and strange alliances. Acclaimed British sci-fi author Ken MacLeod's unique vision is developed even further in a new commentary written especially for this edition, and in his delightful personal account of a Hebridean youth's first encounter with the post-capitalist world. Also featured is an outspoken interview with MacLeod.

Reviews

"MacLeod is a fiercely intelligent, prodigiously well-read author who manages to fill his books with big issues without weighing them down." --Salon.com "MacLeod's novels are fast, funny, and sophisticated. There can never be enough books like these." --Kim Stanley Robinson, author, Mars trilogy "Although the novella soars off into high science fiction for its end twist, its grounding in the Scotland and the Lewis of Macleod's childhood gives it a sense of solidity, grounding it in real history and left wing arguments remembered." --Pik Smeet, World Socialism "There's a 'Plus ...' on the cover and title page, indicating the inclusion of a pair of reflective essays by the author, an interview conducted by Terry Bisson, and an extensive bibliography of MacLeod's fiction and non-fiction. The elements of the package interact nicely." --Russell Letson, Locus ..".an excellent tale, one that readers should be glad to see made readily available in the United States."--Publishers Weekly "Scottish author Ken MacLeod bolsters his tight, brilliant, alternate-history novella with two supporting essays and a lengthy interview, combining revolutionary politics, flying-saucer lore, and family dynamics in a slender but potent volume." --Publishers Weekly "Although the novella soars off into high science fiction for its end twist, its grounding in the Scotland and the Lewis of Macleod's childhood gives it a sense of solidity, grounding it in real history and left wing arguments remembered." --Pik Smeet, "World Socialism" ."..an excellent tale, one that readers should be glad to see made readily available in the United States."--"Publishers Weekly"
