Descripción

1841491551. Signed Hardcover, in a near fine Dust Jacket. 534 pages. SIGNED on the title page, "To Graham, best wishes, Ian M Banks". Humanity has made it to the stars. Fassin Taak, a slow seer at the court of the Nasqueron dwellers, will be fortunate if he makes it to the end of the year. The Nasqueron dwellers inhabit a gas giant on the outskirts of the galaxy, in a system awaiting its wormhole connection to the rest of civilisation. In the meantime they are dismissed as decadents living in a state of highly developed barbarism, hoarding data without order, hunting their own young and fighting pointless formal wars. Contents clean, tight and bright. N° de ref. de la librería 18594
