Notes on 'Stations of the Tide' (1991) by Michael Swanwick (b. 1950)

Set in the far future on Miranda, a planet that is subject to bicentennial cataclysmic ice cap melts, and under the control of a colonial-style orbital data system, Stations of the Tide presents a nightmarishly surreal vision of humanity caught in a dance macabre with monstrous, sentient technology. Swanwick’s hard-to-categorise, post-singularity work helped pave the way for New Weird science fiction. It won the Nebula Novel award (1992) and the SF Chronicle Novel award (1992).
