The Otherby Matthew Hughes
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Meet Luff Imbry, an insidiously clever confidence man . . . He likes good wine, good food, and good stolen goods, and he always maintains the upper hand. When a business rival gets the drop on him, he finds himself abandoned on Fuldaa far-off, isolated world with a history of its own. Unable to blend in and furious for revenge, Imbry has to rely on his infamous criminal wit to survive Fulda’s crusade to extinguish The Other.
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."
“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.”
