From official release/information:

Since we couldn't say things any better, we're reprinting John Berlyne's July, 2004 review.

British writer Tony Ballantyne has already chalked up some notable successes in the short fiction market and has now been picked up by Tor UK, Macmillan's new(ish) genre imprint that is currently developing an impressive stable of new writers. It is notable that Tor UK and Macmillan publish many of the writers associated with the oft bandied-around term The New Weird -- China Mieville, Jeff Vandermeer, Jeff Ford, K.J. Bishop -- and the admirable editorial penchant for this kind of material has been drawn now to Ballantyne for reasons which become apparent on reading Recursion, for there is an imaginative energy in the this novel that allows it to explore some interesting SF ideas.
