Hailed as the heir apparent to Jack Vance, Matthew Hughes brings us this speculative, richly imagined exploration of society on the far edges of extreme. A central character in Black Brillion, Luff Imbry is at last front and center in Hughes’s latest rollercoaster adventure through a far-future universe.
“A tremendous amount of fun.”
—George R. R. Martin
"Superlative. A droll narrative voice, dry humor, and an alternative universe that's accessible without excessive exposition."
— Publishers Weekly
“An intriguing blend of far-future science fiction, fantasy, and mystery . . .”
"A bit Arthur Conan Doyle, a bit Jack Vance . . . [with] the lasting appeal of one of PG Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster books."
“Hughes serves up equal measures of wit, intrigue, and seat-of-the-pants action and even dabbles a little in Jungian psychology.”
