«Ho letto Cardanica e adesso non voglio più prendere nemmeno un ascensore»
Una novelette steampunk su un mondo velenoso solcato
da camion grandi come bastimenti.
2° classificato, Premio Italia 2009.
MondoNove è una distesa di sabbie velenose, punteggiata di agglomerati urbani fatti di ingranaggi, ruote dentate e pulegge. Nel corso dell'evoluzione i loro abitanti si sono applicati a una sola scienza, la meccanica, hanno sviluppato un sola disciplina, la carpenteria. Il pieno dominio sull'elettricità è ancora solo una chimera. A solcare le sabbie tra una città e l'altra sono titanici veicoli a ruote, grandi quanto bastimenti e governati da decine di uomini...

Dario Tonani – born in Milan, 1959 – is one of the main authors of Italy’s science fiction scene. A great sci-fi, noir and horror buff, he has published various novels and around 70 short stories in anthologies, national newspapers and in the most important Italian magazines of the genre.
His most successful series, consisting of two novels and ten short stories is set in a Milan of the future where doped cartoons (known as +toons) roam the streets infecting the citizens with a new powerful drug which is transmitted via the retina. His first title "Infect@", runner-up at the Premio Urania 2005 and published in 2007 by Mondadori, was optioned for a film. The sequel "Toxic@" was published in 2011 together with other short stories relating to the saga.
Another series, also based in Milan (Dario’s hometown), consists of two novellas which were both published in the "L'algoritmo bianco" (Mondadori, 2009). The protagonist is a killer who moves through the bowels of a city and its corrupt technology in the year 2045.
In 2011 Tonani completed his steampunk/horror saga set on World-9, the story of a giant sentient ship-truck grappling with a wild and poisonous planet. The four stories that make up the series have all been published first of all in ebook, and then on paper under the title "Mondo9" (Delos Books, 2012): "Cardanica", "Robredo", "Chatarra" and "Afritania". After achieving great success in Italy, the first of them is being published in the US, where it has earned the praise of undisputed steampunk maestro, Paul Di Filippo.
Dario has won numerous prizes: Premio Tolkien, 1989; Premio Lovecraft, 1994 and ’99; Premio Italia, 1989, 1992, 2000, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015; Premio Robot, 2013; Premio Cassiopea. The best of his sci-fi short stories is found in the "Infected Files" anthology published in 2011 – both on paper and in digital format – by Delos Books.
In 2014, "Mondo9" has been translated into Japanese. And the complete saga (9 novels and novelettes) has been published in 2015 as "Cronache di Mondo9"(Millemondi Urania, Mondadori).
Married, with a 23 year old son, Tonani lives and works in the suburbs of Milan, a stone’s throw from the places he describes in his stories. He is currently working on a new novel/thriller as well as on various non sci-fi stories.
