A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's third novel. "An alternate history set in an England transfigured into a Steampunk dystopia by the discovery of the eponymous superconductor -- extracted from a fallen moonlet -- which explodes with nuclear force when heated, but which is also capable of powering spaceships." - John Clute, SFE (online). "Victorian scientists discover a volatile substance in an Antarctic meteorite, and use it to win the Crimean War. From this stems a glorious new development for the British Empire, involving land leviathans and a flight to the Moon, although all is not as rosy as it seems." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 16. "There have been clues throughout that England is turning into a deeply unpleasant country . It is, in the end, an extremely tricky, sly, shocking, subversive little book." - John Clute. A fine copy in fine variant dust jacket with no price on the front flap, a probable export issue. (#125542). N° de réf. du libraire 125542
