Keeping it Real, by Justina Robson

I thought this was really tremendous. I've read a lot of really bad books where the gateway between our own planet and the Faerie Otherworld opens up; this works really well because the basic fantasy premise is overlaid with a technothriller superstructure, where our cyborg heroine gets involved with dodgy technology transfer and music. I have generally liked Robson's work and I loved this; I'm surprised it didn't score in the 2006/07 awards season - perhaps too difficult to pigeonhole in terms of subgenre?
