Product description

Count Sessine is about to die for the very last time ...Chief Scientist Gadfium is about to receive the mysterious message she has been waiting for from the Plain of Sliding Stones ...And Bascule the Teller, in search of an ant, is about to enter the chaos of the crypt ...And everything is about to change ...For this is the time of the encroachment and, although the dimming sun still shines on the vast, towering walls of Serehfa Fastness, the end is close at hand. The King knows it, his closest advisers know it, yet sill they prosecute the war against the clan Engineers with increasing savagery. The crypt knows it too; so an emissary has been sent, an emissary who holds the key to all their futures.

Author information

Iain Banks came to widespread and controversial public notice with the publication of his first novel, THE WASP FACTORY, in 1984. He has since gained enormous popular and critical acclaim for both his mainstream and his science fiction novels.

Review quote

Another truly impressive piece of work from the pen of a master storyteller. STARBURST Dazzlingly original. DAILY MAIL Banks is a phenomenon: the widly successful, fearlessly creative author of brilliant and disturbing non-genre novels, he's equally at home writing pure science fiction of a peculiarly gnarly energy and elegance. WILLIAM GIBSON Sharp, witty, comprehensively terrifying. OBSERVER

Editorial reviews

The tale of a vast environment whose purpose we only gradually discern. Banks throws into the mix a beautiful amnesiac, the cyberghost trying to understand his own murder, the young novice who can do almost anything except spell - the title being a case in point - and a restless invention that continually pulls the rug from our ideas of what is going on.
