Author(s): Brian W. Aldiss
An ambitious, incredible - Space Opera! A science-fiction story which occasionally breaks off into song - a genuine space opera. Quite possibly Aldiss's strangest novel, and that is saying something.
'There is no way to describe the mad sci-fi genius of Brian Aldiss, except to say, perhaps inadequately, that he is Joyce, Huxley, Waugh, on a pot party. With Arthus C. Clarke trying to give a lecture to Isaac Asimov while Noel Coward sings and plays the piano.' EDWARD L. HARRIS author of THE GIANTS OF SCIENCE FICTION'For decades, Brian Aldiss has been among our most prolific and consistently stylish writers' The Telegraph
