this is an ambitious and original work from an author well worth keeping an eye on. high marks for a high concept re-invention of what the sf novel can be, though the execution of the epic and concrete poetry in which it's written is somewhat uneven. Calypso is a generation ship in flux, and also an echo of a parable of Homer's tale in which Calypso is keeping Odyseus from getting home after the long war. in this story there has been a deadly schism onboard between the Botanists and the Engineers in how to terraform the world the ship is heading for: go high tech (the future) or naturalistic (the past). so it's quite interesting on many levels and i'll be looking out for this author in future.
