This novella is written in an experimental style but I think Williams pulls it off. On the other hand, if first person, present tense and non-linear chronologies annoy you, you might want to stay away from this one.CENOTAXIS deals with the leader of a resistance movement against Imre Bergamasc, the protagonist from the first Astropolis book, SATURN RETURNS. The resistance leader, Jasper, believes he is the incarnation of God and the reader sees everything through his eyes. He does not experience time in the usual chronological sense, but rather his awareness jumps between different days throughout his life, seemingly at random. While possibly not everyone's cup of tea, I enjoyed this style of writing.An interesting read and a thought-provoking one.
