A brand new novel from the "King of high concept SF" Adam Roberts, one of the UK's most prolific and certainly one of the most imaginative writers currently at work in the field.
"Gradisil is a multi-generational story of murder, betrayal and revenge.
It is told through the eyes of three characters and against a background where mankind's rush onto space has faded away leaving individual pioneers to force their way independently into space after the collapse of big government space agencies.
They ride up into space on the lines of electromagnetic force that flower into space from earth like the mighty Yggradisil - the earth tree of Norse myth. Leaving their weight behind they still carry a cargo of enmities and betrayals."
