In the 22nd century visionary scientist Vannevar Morgan conceives the most grandiose engineering project of all time, and one which will revolutionize the future of humankind in space: a Space Elevator, 36,000 kilometers high, anchored to an equatorial island in the Indian Ocean. An amazing list ? genuinely the best novels from sixty years of SF. - Iain M. Banks Delightfully written and at times almost unbearably exciting. - Kingsley Amis His enthusiasm is combined with his considerable literary and myth-making skills ... the result is something special. - Sunday Telegraph A superbly crafted novel that may be his best. - Tribune

For the only possible site on the planet for Morgans Orbital Tower is the monastery atop the Sacred Mountain of Sri Kanda.
