Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christopher Priest (born July 14, 1943 in Cheadle, Greater Manchester) is an English novelist and science fiction writer. His works include Fugue for a Darkening Island, Inverted World, The Affirmation, The Glamour, The Prestige and The Separation. Priest has been strongly influenced by the science fiction of H. G. Wells and in 2006 was appointed to the position of Vice-President of the international H. G. Wells Society. One of his early novels, The Affirmation, concerns a traumatized man who apparently flips into a delusional world in which he experiences a lengthy voyage to an archipelago of exotic islands. This setting had previously featured in many of Priest's short stories, which raises the question of whether the Dream Archipelago is actually a fantasy. The state of mind depicted in this novel is similar to that of the delusional fantasy-prone psychoanalytic patient ("Kirk Allen") in Robert Lindner's The Fifty-Minute Hour or Jack London's tortured prisoner in The Star Rover.show more
