SF novel: sequel to PARADOX and followed by RESOLUTION. Full-colour wraparound dustjacker artwork by Jim Burns. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
''UK author who began to publish work of genre interest with ''Spring Rain'' for Interzone in July 1992, and who publishes near future thrillers as by Thomas Blackthorne; his first novel, To Hold Infinity (1998), describes a world dominated by Cyborgs whose brains are enhanced by computer-augments but who are otherwise all-too-human. Meaney came to wide notice with the Nulapeiron Sequence - comprising Paradox (November 1994 Interzone as ''Parallax Transform''; much expanded 2000), Context (2002) and Resolution (2005) - set Underground in a moderately distant future where rigid class divisions are maintained by technofixes and the claims of the ruling class to inhabit the past, present and future simultaneously, creating a stranglehold over reality and a monopoly on Predictions. The series protagonist, who has access to a fractal-universe portal in the shape of an ''info-crystal'', upsets the apple cart; later volumes introduce plagues, aliens, and the threat (or promise) of transcendence'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
