Description

Grandmaster A. E. van Vogt was one of the giants of the Golden Age of classic SF, the 1940s. Of his masterpieces, "The World of Null-A" is perhaps most influential. It was the first major trade SF hardcover ever, in 1949, and has been in print ever since. The careers of Philip K. Dick, Keith Laumer, Alfred Bester, Charles Harness, and Philip Jose Farmer were created or influenced by "The World of Null-A". It is required reading for anyone who wishes to know the canon of SF classics.And so John C. Wright was inspired to write a sequel to the two novels of "Null-A" (the second was "The Players of Null-A"). To do this, he trained himself to write in the pulp style and manner of van Vogt. So return again to the Null-A future, in which the man with two brains, Gilbert Gosseyn, now discovers his third brain and travels through heretofore unimaginable distances in space and in time to fend off the death of the Universe and the extermination of human life as humanity reaches the peak of evolution millions of years in the future.show more

Review quote

"After more than half a century I can still recall the impact of his early stories."--Arthur C. Clarke on A.E. van Vogt "Brilliant . . . Acute, open-minded readers . . . will be stunned by a classic of SF literature."--"Cinescape "on" The World of Null-A ""Along with Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein--and to a lesser extent L. Sprague De Camp and L. Ron Hubbard--he seemed nearly to create, by writing what Campbell wanted to publish, the first genuinely successful period of U.S. SF.""--The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction" on A.E. van Vogt "An exciting voice, adding richness to hard science fiction."--David Brin on John C.
