Product description

Seventy-five years in the future...Earth is ruled by China...Cities span entire continents...History has been erased...2087: Japan lies under a radioactive cloud, its denizens wiped out. America has been subjugated, its inhabitants dispersed in the world of levels. The banner armies of Tsao Ch'un - the Son of Heaven, supreme ruler of Chung Kuo - are mobilizing against pockets of resistance in the Middle East. But even the Son of Heaven cannot live forever. Already the envoys of the Seven Dragons are being turned away from the Black Tower. Faced with the capricious behaviour of an aging tyrant, the Wheel of Dragons is about to turn against its master. In the depths of the world of levels, far below the towers of genetics mega-corporations and the AI-controlled villas of the elite, far from the patrolling attack craft of Tsao Ch'un, the anger of the people is becoming outright rebellion. The fight for the new world is just beginning. Welcome to the future.

Review quote

"* 'Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here' - The Times * 'One of the masterpieces of the decade' - Washington Post * 'Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust' - BRIAN ALDISS * 'Excellent... with a well-imagined universe, well-executed characters and action that doesn't let up, this is Orwell's 1984 but on an enormous canvas packed with detail' - Toronto Globe and Mail"
