Description:

First Britsh Edition -True First. Boldly SIGNED By Author on Title Page. This is an unread copy in a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. Small print run of 900 copies. Author's debut novel, short-listed for the 2001 Arthur C. Clarke Award. This first novel tells the story of the planet Salt, a harsh, arid planet made up of mostly sodium chloride, and its colonization by an assortment of various religious groups. Told from the perspective of two men from two different groups in alternating chapters, Salt is a study of human behavior, how misunderstanding, human error, and wrong choices can have dire consequences for all involved. This is a remarkable debut novel and has been compared to such classics as The Dispossessed and Dune. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Two narrators tell the story of the simmering tensions between their two communities as they travel out to a new planet, colonise it, then destroy themselves when the tensions turn into outright war. Adam Roberts is a new writer completely in command of the SF genre. This is a novel that is at once entertaining and philosophical. The attitudes and prejudices of its characters are subtlety drawn and ring completely true despite the alien circumstances they find themselves in. The grasp of science and its impact on people is instinctive. But above all it is the epic and colourful world building that marks SALT out - the planet Salt rivals Dune in its desolation and is a suitably biblical setting for a novel that is powered by the corrupting influence of imperfectly remembered religions on distant societies. From the early scenes set on a colony ship towed by a massive ice meteorite, to the description of a planet covered in sodium chloride, to the chilling narrative of a world sliding into its first war, this is a novel from a writer who shouts star quality.

About the Author: Adam Roberts is Reader in English at London University. His first novel, Salt, was nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award. He has also published a number of academic works on both 19th century poetry and SF.
