John Clute was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1940, but has lived most of his life in England. He has won three Hugo Awards for his nonfiction. Recent work includes Appleseed, a novel, The Darkening Garden: A Short Lexicon of Horror, and Canary Fever: Reviews.
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.
