'A breakthrough book ... a unique blend of scientific and
philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory
and cosmology, where kings and emperors from both western and
Chinese history mingle in a dreamlike game world, while cops and
physicists deal with global conspiracies, murders, and alien
invasions in the real world' George R.R. Martin.
'Even what doesn't happen is epic' London Review of Books.
