Overview

Nebula Award-winning author Walter Jon Williams serves up a glorious novelette-sized mashup of intrigue, cutting-edge biotech, Aymara Indian spies, a Chinese cruise ship, ninjas, Andean folk music, and a tetrahedal menace from beneath the sea.

But the greatest threat to our heroes comes in the form of a water ballet company, whose director insists on Total Artistic Control.

�...A rapid, imaginative, and at times hilarious story, packed with action and great characters...[Williams�] story is complete, rounded, and a great read.�
--Patrick Samphire

About the Author

Walter Jon Williams is an award-winning author who has been listed on the best-seller lists of the New York Times and the Times of London. He is the author of twenty-nine novels and three collections of short fiction.

His first novel to attract serious public attention was Hardwired (1986), described by Roger Zelazny as "a tough, sleek juggernaut of a story, punctuated by strobe-light movements, coursing to the wail of jets and the twang of steel guitars." In 2001 he won a Nebula Award for his novelette, �Daddy�s World,� and won again in 2005 for �The Green Leopard Plague.�

Walter's subject matter has an unusually wide range, and include the glittering surfaces of Hardwired, the opulent tapestries of Aristoi, the bleak future police novel Days of Atonement, and the pensive young Mary Shelley of the novella "Wall, Stone, Craft," which was nominated for a Hugo, Nebula, and a World Fantasy Award.

His latest work is The Fourth Wall, a near-future thriller set in the world of Hollywood

Walter has also written for the screen and for television, and has worked in the gaming field.
