Saturn Returns (Astropolis) by Sean Williams
Orbit Paperback  ISBN/ITEM#: 9781841495187
Date: 05 July 2007 List Price £10.99 Amazon US / Amazon UK /

Well established, award-winning Australian author Sean Williams, offers up this tantalising space opera which features, as he puts it in his blog, "the uniquely dystopian and very SFnal lyrics of legendary electro-goth, Gary Numan...I'm not talking about a quote here and there.... Nor am I talking about cheesy post-modern flashbacks reflecting on the good old days of synthpop....I'm talking about a major character who speaks solely in Gary Numan lyrics. Every word, without exception--from common, everyday interjections to long, introspective rants."

I've not managed to read Saturn Return's as yet, but I must admit, Williams's blog claim does make me want to see if he managed to pull this off! Saturn Returns is published by Orbit this month in trade paperback.
