The year is 2207. Chung Kuo’s perfect stasis is falling apart. The Seven’s dominance is threatened by a series of terrorist attacks as the War of Two Directions intensifies. Howard DeVore, the Seven’s greatest enemy, is masterminding the atrocities – but how can they hunt down a man who seems to be invulnerable?
Kim Ward, the Clay-born scientific genius, is attacked by a group of deadly assassins, bent on destroying his work. And a group of rich young American rebels intend to create Change. At any price.
Awesome. CHUNG KUO carries the hallmark of legend.
Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here.
Colossal. A long-awaited, elaborately frightening vision of the future.
Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust.
