About the Book: Nova Swing
A sequel to the bestselling Light, a novel of full-spectrum literary dominance (Guardian).
It is some time after Ed Chianeses trip into the KefahuchiTract. A major industry of the Halo is now tourism. The Tract hasbegun to expand and change, but, more problematically, parts of ithave also begun to fall to earth, piecemeal, on the Beachplanets.
We are in a city, perhaps on New Venusport or Motel Splendido:next to the city is the event site, the zone, from out of whichpour new, inexplicable artefacts, organisms and escapes of livingalgorithm -the wrong physics loose in the universe. They can causeplague and change. An entire department of the local police, SiteCrime, exists to stop them being imported into the city byadventurers, entradistas, and the men known as travel agents,profiteers who can manage -or think they can manage -the badphysics, skewed geographies and psychic onslaughts of the eventsite.
But now a new class of semi-biological artefact is finding itsway out of the site, and this may be more than anyone canhandle.
