Neverness (Paperback)David Zindell (author)
- We can order this
An epic masterwork of science fiction, Neverness is a stand-alone novel from one of the most important talents in the genre.
The universe of Neverness is intriguingly complex and filled with extraordinary beings. There are the Alaloi, whose genes have `backmutated' so that they look like Neanderthals... the Order of Pilots, which reworks the laws of time and physics to slingshot its members through dense regions of `thickspace'... the Solid State Entity, a nebula-sized brain made up of moon-sized biocomputers...
Against this backdrop stands Mallory Ringer, the headstrong novitiate of the Order of Pilots, who, against all odds, navigates a maze of interspatial passageways to penetrate the Solid State Entity. There he makes a stunning discovery. A discovery that could unlock the secret of immortality hidden among the Alaloi.
