Description

Listed by the Guardian as one of the top 100 science fiction books of the 21st century.

On the barren surface of an asteroid, located deep in the galaxy beneath the unbearable light of the Kefahuchi Tract, lie three objects: an abandoned spacecraft, a pair of bone dice covered with strange symbols, and a human skeleton.

What they are and what they mean are the mysteries explored and unwrapped in LIGHT, M. John Harrison's triumphant novel.

Review quote

This will soon be regarded as one of the most dazzling novels of its genre - Daily Telegraph

An amazing book: not just a triumphant return to science fiction, but an injection of style and content that will light up the genre

A singular stylist - Times Literary Supplement

a witty and truly imaginative writer - Literary Review

Harrison is best known as one of the restless fathers of modern SF, but to my mind he is among the most brilliant novelists writing today, with regard to whom the question of genre is an irrelevance

Austere, unflinching and desperately moving, he is one of the very great writers alive today.
