1 Sinclair, AlisonCavalcade. 05260
Millenium: London. 1998.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''an alien race contacts earth and declares that they travel the universe and explore lifeforms. They make an offer: anyone interested is welcome to travel with them. The novel starts just after thousands of humans who have accepted the offer are beamed onboard a spacecraft. They soon realise that everything electronical does not work. In this naked state, in terms of technology, they have to organise to survive, wondering who and where the aliens are. The alien spacecraft is, in a sense, a gigantic petri dish, and thus the story deals more with human relations under primitive conditions. Right under the surface of the story is a ''Lord of the flies'' theme exploring human nature, with a particular focus on our capacity for distrust and evil''.

Millenium: London. 1995.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Sf novel: the author's first book.

''With it's strong narrative, it's intelligence and scope..this is the kind of book that first attracted me to science fiction, the sort one sees too rarely these days'' (Lucius Shepard). ''A people torn in two by a tragic accident, split by worlds and time, are finally reunited sending their joint history reeling. Amidst incredible alien habitats records are preserved in electronic archives and in muddy inks on old paper; thus the legacies of love and murder left in trust for future generations await discovery. One young man has the insight and the ability to wonder that others lack, to act where others have hesitated. And his actions will echo for generations to come''.
