Exclamation Free (Kindle KDP) Urbis Morpheos by Stephen Palmer [Far Future Science Fiction Quest]

Urbis Morpheos by UK author Stephen Palmer (ISFDB entry) is one of those weirdly-evolved far-future-society science fiction novels with a mysterious background quest of self-discovery plot, free courtesy of PS Publishing, who printed in a limited edition hardcover in 2010 and are offering it via KDP now.

Free, probably without DRM and for the next two or so days @ Amazon main UK DE ES FR IT

Description
A million years in the future, two ecosystems stand opposed. The first, Nature, has faded, and exists only as isolated havens or, in the wider world, as biomes perverted by artifice into hideous forms. And against it stands the manufacturing ecosystem, which has evolved into a myriad lifelike shapes, yet offers only an antiseptic brutality. The land itself has changed. It is mutable. Maps remain accurate for little more than decades in Urbis Morpheos, the great manufactured environment that once was Earth . . .

In this bleak and hostile world live two women, Psolilai and psolilai, both of whom are on a mission. Psolilai (who dreams of psolilai) seeks wisdom following the funeral of her uncle and the discovery of a mysterious scriber. psolilai (who dreams of Psolilai) seeks
3Machines, the owl, the fount of wisdom of the great haven of Mahandriana, which is composed entirely of fungus. Both of these women have as their aide the peripatetic mycologist Gularvhen, who knows more than he says and who rides a three-eared horse
with six voices. For in Urbis Morpheos the artificial computing system is scarlet and deadly, while the natural knowledge system is soft and fungal, full of secrets.

What is the truth of the ancient artifacts The Constructor and The Transmuter? What is the connection between them, the shapeshifting malleads and the sentients of the manufacturing ecosystem, the agens? In a world so numinous with artificial mystery most people have forgotten their origins in nature, Psolilai and psolilai must follow their paths and find wisdom. But men and devices stand in their way. And the most powerful being in Urbis Morpheos perhaps has hidden plans.

Thanks. Looks worth a look. Originally a Wildside Cosmos book it seems.
