AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the aftermath of a mysterious galactic catastrophe, a messiah intent on reuniting the warring factions of humanity under the banner of a false religion comes at last to the birthplace of civilization: the ancient and mysterious world of Earth. Long abandoned by its children, Earth is old and scarred but far from spent. Home for one million years to minds more powerful than any remaining in existence, it will be the setting of a battle deciding the future of the galaxy, and humanity itself.

On Earth, a false prophet comes face to face with his greatest adversary yet: a man who thinks he's god, and might very well be right.

Set in the same universe as Astropolis, William's space opera series which began with Saturn Returns, Cenotaxis paints a complex and beautiful picture of the future, and of the people who will decide its fate.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Lou & Chris, the real McCoys
  • Epigraph:

    'A finger writing on the wall,

    While girls sang as the angels sing-

    A drunken boaster in the hall,

    The fool that used to be a king.'
