Out on Blue Six (eBook): McDonald, Ian, In a far-future city where happiness and stability are law, a group of rebels will fight for what it means to be human. The Compassionate Society was designed as a utopia, where people's genetic predispositions and aptitudes -- rather than random choice -- guide their lives, and pain of any kind is illegal.

  Besides this single, Out On Blue Six recorded two sessions for John Peel (one in , the other in ) and apparently little else. You would have hoped that a more organised indie label could have found space for them on its roster, but it would seem that nobody bit, and this is their sole physical product.

"Out on blue six" is at least en par with the best in techno-optimistic cyberpunk like the Neuromancer or Snow Crash. In some ways it's even better: more surreal and more ecstatic, less explained technology and more punk.

Whoever grew up in the late 80s and 90s and was taken by the optimism and ecstasy of the time will most likely suffer from /5(23).

Out on Blue Six is a marvelous trip though a dystopian future but in the end I think McDonald doesn't manage to put all that creativity in the service of novel as a whole. That being said, there are people who absolutely adore this book/5(50).

Welcome, lucky reader, to a glad moment in literary history: the republication of Ian McDonald's magnificent novel "Out on Blue Six," a book I've read dozens of times, and by which I. That being said, Out on Blue Six, according to McDonald in the same interview, has a minor cult following; there is a group of fans who adore the novel.

Cory Doctorow among them, his quasi-calamity of an introduction points directly to the obtuse froth of ideas as being precisely the reason he loves the book.
