Empty Space

At last: the final book in the awesome Kefahuchi Tract Trilogy!
Empty Space
Product Unavailable
EMPTY SPACE is a space adventure. We begin with the following dream: An alien research tool the size of a brown dwarf star hangs in the middle of nowhere, as a result of an attempt to place it equidistant from everything else in every possible universe. Somewhere in the fractal labyrinth beneath its surface, a woman lies on an allotropic carbon deck, a white paste of nanomachines oozing from the corner of her mouth. She is neither conscious nor unconscious, dead nor alive. There is something wrong with her cheekbones. At first you think she is changing from one thing into another -- perhaps it's a cat, perhaps it's something that only looks like one -- then you see that she is actually trying to be both things at once. She is waiting for you, she has been waiting for you for perhaps 10,000 years. She comes from the past, she comes from the future. She is about to speak-- EMPTY SPACE is a sequel to LIGHT and NOVA SWING, three strands presented in alternating chapters which will work their way separately back to this image of frozen transformation.
M. John Harrison was born in the Peak District and now lives in London.
On a sentence level, Harrison outwrites most British authors currently working in any genre... A typically abrupt download of a Chandlerian future-noir, quantum space opera and some sad vignettes of contemporary British alienation. With patience, it's extraordinary. The Daily Telegraph 20121215
