SF novel.

''again and again, his novels reveal themselves to be very much of a piece, a series of thought experiments which spiral outwards from the same central obsessions about the nature of perception, the quest for what might be called the True Names that describe ultimate realities, and the terrible cost to human beings -- in betrayals and self-betrayals -- of searching for transcendence. ALIEN EMBASSY (1977) foregrounds a constant preoccupation of the author - his concern with the control of information and perception by the powers-that-be, generally governments - in a tale about the frustrated transformation of the human race'' (John Clute & Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
