by John Shirley

The kind of originality that conventional science fiction is reluctant to welcome: a visionary adventure.

In the near future, the human race is facing an intolerable population crisis and impending global conflict. Devastating war and vast destruction seem inevitable.

The old rules are meaningless; anarchy and violence arise, but rationality and cooperation also persist. But with all the old prejudices surviving, humans still turn to military force as the answer to their problems. Can humanity learn to adapt... and survive?
