Attention Shadowrun Fans...

If you like to mix your cyberpunk with elves, go read Justina Robson's Keeping It Real. I'm in the middle of it now, and I'm enjoying it.

The premise of the setting is that there was a quantum explosion in the near-future that ripped a hole into other (magical) realities.

A quote from one of the Amazon reviews, "I found this author's vision irreconcilable with my own pre-conceived notions of Tolkien's Middle Earth. I feel like this work border's on blasphemy with regards to how Elves speak and act."

How can you not read the book after something like that?
