Détails bibliographiques

Titre : RADIX

Éditeur : William Morrow and Company, Inc., New York

Date d'édition : 1981

Reliure : Hardcover

Etat de la jaquette : Dust Jacket Included

Edition : 1st Edition

Description :

Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. The scarce hardbound issue; reportedly only 1000 copies so bound. The author's first book and the first book of the Radix Tetrad sequence that "works as a complex meditation on metamorphosis elaborated within a space opera frame, so that densely ambitious moments of poetic aspiration alternate with episodes out of the rag-and-bone shop of pulp magazine fiction; this early use of space opera as frame or arena for baroque exfoliations of story immediately prefigures the similarly exorbitant work of Iain M. Banks and Dan Simmons . After losing her radiation shield, which guards her against the full nakedness of the universe, Earth begins to mutate savagely, a transformation articulated clearly in RADIX itself through the story of a mutant superman, who undergoes the same transcendental jumpstart that jolts his planet through terrors and dimensions. - John Clute, SFE (online). 1981 Nebula nominee. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-55. A fine copy in fine price-clipped dust jacket. (#126306). N° de réf. du libraire 126306

New Corrected February, 2011

A young man's odyssey of self discovery in a world eerily alien, yet hauntingly familiar. *

Set thirteen centuries in the future, A. A. Attanasio meticulously creates a brilliantly realized Earth, rich in detail and filled with beings brought to life with intense energy. *

In this strange and beautiful world, Sumner Kagan will change from an adolescent outcast to a warrior with god-like powers and in the process take us on an epic and transcendent journey. ***

?An instant classic.??Washington Post *

?RADIX is sheer pleasure to read: brimming with living characters, splendid adventures....It is an exhilarating novel.??Minneapolis Tribune *

?Attanasio invents language, customs, hardware, history, small animals, and more good supporting characters than most writers can get into five books.??Newsday *

?Here stands a high talent; a truly amazing, original, towering talent.??L.A. Times *

?Alive with enough zest and daring to rise above the sf/fantasy run-of-the-mill??Kirkus Reviews
