About this title

Synopsis:

Adam Roberts' fourth novel is his most ambitious yet. In a feat of extraordinary world building he creates a universe where a breathable atmosphere extends out between the planets, where aristocrats cruise interstellar space in biplanes, and skywhals make mysterious distant orbits. Then, with bravura plotting he undermines our own notions of reality and leaves the reader unsure which universe to believe. Gaining a reputation as one of the UK's leading SF stylists and masters of the high-concept Roberts, shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke award with his debut novel SALT, confirms his extraordinary potential with POLYSTOM.

From the Publisher:

In a feat of extraordinary imagination, Adam Roberts creates a universe in which a breathable atmosphere extends out between the planets, aristocrats cruise interstellar space in biplanes, Skywhals make mysterious distant orbits, and a fruitless war has dragged on for years. With bravura plotting, Roberts presents two universes, challenging our very notions of reality. Gaining a reputation as one of Britain’s top SF stylists, Adam Roberts is the author of Salt—which was shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award—On, and Stone. He teaches at London University and has also published academic works on both 19th–century poetry and science fiction.
