Tantrics of Old - Krishnarjun Bhattacharya

The book challenge for Diwali included reading a book set in India. I decided to take a twist on that and read some Indian Science Fiction. The publishing market in India is exploding but domestic Science Fiction is still a minority pursuit. 

 

"Tantrics of Old" is set in a future Kolkata (the city we colonial invaders called Calcutta) and involves both some kind of ultra-modern group called MYTH - I don't know who or what they are yet - and magic of the Indian runes and demons kind, practised illegally by Tantrics.

 

I used to go to Kolkata regularly on business so I saw a bit of the city and its people. I'm intrigued to see how this plays out.
