SONG OF TIME [Novel]. Typescript, computer generated in 2006. 293 pages, with submission letter from Susan Ann Protter to Tor Books senior editor David G. Hartwell dated 5 May 2006. SONG OF TIME (2008) was also a meditation on coming to terms with the past. In this case the central character, Roushana Maitland, is a classical musician living on the coast of Cornwall in the mid-twenty-first century. Her retrospectives on her life comprise one of the fullest sf treatments of classical Music, and a history of the world over her lifetime can also be glimpsed. Song of Time deservedly won the Arthur C Clarke Award and also shared the John W Campbell Memorial Award ... MacLeod is a self-consciously and deliberately literary author. His prose is crafted with far more care than that of most sf authors, and to the extent that he depicts conceptual Novums or scientific advances, they are most often the background for exploration of character. Along with Robert Silverberg he is perhaps sf's greatest chronicler of inwardness." - SFE (online). The book was published by PS Publishing in 2008. Nearly fine overall. (#157447).
