Synopses & Reviews
John C. Wright burst upon the SF scene a decade ago with the Golden Age trilogy, an innovative space opera. He went on to write fantasy novels, including the popular Orphans of Chaos trilogy. And now he returns to space opera in Count to a Trillion
After the collapse of the world economy, a young boy grows up in what used to be Texas as a tough duellist for hire, the future equivalent of a hired gun. But even after the collapse, there is space travel, and he leaves Earth to have adventures in the really wide open spaces. But he is quickly catapulted into the more distant future, while humanity, and Artificial Intelligence, grows and changes and becomes a kind of superman.
Praise for John C. Wright
“Wright is a born novelist. And Null-A Continuum is a novelists novel, bristling with ideas and characters…. Wrights book is an erudite homage to the pulp tradition by a twenty-first century master.” —The Magazine of Fantasy & Sciencen Fiction
“Wrights fully realized future pulsates with life, intrigue, and unsettling correlations between his future and our present. The story is epic, operatic, heroic, romantic, and mythic all rolled into one.”
—Rain Taxi on The Phoenix Exult ant
“[There are] scientists and artists who dare to dream of post-human futures…Cory Doctorow, Bruce Sterling, Greg Egan, Rudy Rucker—these are just the first names that come most quickly to mind. Add to this list of brave visionaries that of John Wright.”
—SciFi Weekly on The Phoenix Exultant
The first book in an all-new space adventure!
