The Ea Cycle:


     Voyager - First Edition Hardcover - Signed                                                                                    Voyager - First Editions Hardcover

David Lindell’s debut novel. This is the Grafton first edition hardcover.

Neverness is one of those highly complex reads which can either frustrate or reward, in this case it frustrated. It concerns a medium far-future world where mathematicians have become a kind of caste or religious order, because of their abilities to do the calculations needed for space travel. It follows one, Mallory Ringess, as he discovers secrets and strangeness in the Universe he inhabits. Amongst these are experiences with the science fiction equivalent of a Goddess who was once a little girl and the discovery of immortals.

The book is praised for its unusual approach to showing an unfamiliar world, and the deep complexity of its story.

There is a trilogy of sequel novels to Neverness called 'A Requiem for Homo Sapiens’.
