Employing a dazzling range of literary techniques, John Brunner has created a future world as real as this morning's newspaper... With a new introduction by Ken MacLeod.
John Brunner was a prolific British SF writer. In 1951, he published his first novel, Galactic Storm, at the age of just 17, and went on to write dozens of novels under his own and various house names until his death in 1995 at the Glasgow Worldcon. He won the HUGO AWARD and the BRITISH SCIENCE FICTION AWARD for STAND ON ZANZIBAR (a regular contender for the 'best SF novel of all time') and the BRITISH SCIENCE FICTION AWARD for The Jagged Orbit.
