It is 1848 and the British Empire has grown rich exploiting Lilliputian slaves—the finesse of their working allowing unheard of feats of miniature engineering; even Babbage's computing device has been made to work. But now the French have formed a regiment of previously peaceful Brobdingnagian giants and invasion looms. In a world where humanity is both smaller and larger than it once was, love and hate loom large. Mankind discovers itself at the center of scale. Lilliputians are 12 times smaller than us but there are those 12 times smaller than them, and 12 times smaller again and so on. And the scale of being goes up from Swift's giants, as well. This Wellesian sequel to Gulliver's Travels is a unique piece of sci-fi literature.

About the Author:

Adam Roberts is a novelist whose titles include Salt and Gradisil. His work has been nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Philip K. Dick Award. He also writes parodies, including Doctor Whom: E.T. Shoots and Leaves, The Sellamillion, and The Va Dinci Cod.

Review:

"A worthy science fictional successor to Swift's indispensable masterwork... equal parts adventure story and social commentary. Its philosophy is Swift's, but its success is all Roberts's own." "--Strange Horizons"
