The Dervish House Summary


The Dervish House by Ian McDonald

In the CHAGA novels Ian McDonald brought an Africa in the grip of a bizarre alien invasion to life, in RIVER OF GODS he painted a rich portrait of India in 2047, in BRASYL he looked at different Brazils, past present and future. Ian McDonald has found renown at the cutting edge of a movement to take SF away from its British and American white roots and out into the rich cultures of the world.

THE DERVISH HOUSE continues that journey and centres on Istanbul in 2025. Turkey is part of Europe but sited on the edge, it is an Islamic country that looks to the West. THE DERVISH HOUSE is the story of the families that live in and around its titular house, it is at once a rich mosaic of Islamic life in the new century and a telling novel of future possibilities.

The Dervish House Reviews


Loving Ian McDonald's science-fiction vision of Istanbul ... Ancient Ottoman mysteries and nanotechnology: that's the kind of mash-up we like. * THE HERALD (Glasgow) *
The Dervish House is simply sublime, an incredible novel by a literary genius that is by far one of the best novels of the last decade * SFBOOK *
