Like everyone else in the nuclear-wasted world he lives in, David is loyal to his kind and on the watch for anyone who deviates from the ideological or genetic norm. But what would happen if it were revealed that David himself was a mutant? Wyndham’s novel is a thrilling science fiction classic for teens and adults alike.
The City is pulled along on tracks, forever at risk of slipping back in space and time, and threatened on all sides by hostile tribes. Christopher Priest’s classic of hard science fiction is as mind-bending as it was when it was first published thirty years ago.
