Ian Watson¿s brilliant debut novel was one of the most significant publications in British sf in the 1970s. Intellectually bracing and grippingly written, it is the story of three experiments in linguistics, and is driven by a searching analysis of the nature of communication. Fiercely intelligent, energetic and challenging, it immediately established Watson as a writer of rare power and vision, and is now recognized as a modern classic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Enthralling . . . It gave one the sense of being led very near to the brink of profundity, even revelationFast, invigorating . . . anthropology, linguistics, despoliation of the environment, consciousness-raising drugs, space travel, alien contact, the CIA, you name it. Watson writes with energy and panache - Science Fiction: The 100 Best NovelsThe most impressive first sf novel to appear in the seventiesBrilliantly attempts to communicate a precarious truth about what we think is actuality. The effect is quite hallucinating - The TimesThe most spectacular thing in science fiction since the astounding Solaris - The SpectatorAmbitious and compelling - Daily TelegraphOne of the most thought-provoking shudders of the year - The Times
