The Continent of Lies
By James Morrow
An extraordinary journey through inner and outer space, from the World Fantasy Award-winning author.
Cephapples can seriously damage your health...
A cephapple is a dreambean - a programmed hallucination. Quinjinn is a reviewer of cephapples. When he is persuaded to sample one particular dream, it is so real that he cannot get it out of his mind, and so hideous that he cannot remember its climax. Horrified when his young daughter is exposed to it as well, Quinjinn resolves to find the tree on which this cephapple grew, and to destroy it before it can poison any other minds.
His interstellar quest becomes a bizarre journey through a cold and alien galaxy and exotic distant planets - and into the deepest recesses of his own mind.
James Morrow (1947 - )
Born in Philadelphia, James Morrow spent much of his teenage life in Hillside Cemetery, where he entertained his passion for 8mm moviemaking by creating numerous short horror and fantasy films with his friends. Having received degrees from both the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University, he then turned his creative urges to writing. Commonly in his works, Morrow satirises organised religion and elements of humanism and atheism. He is perhaps best known for the Godhead Trilogy, the first of which, Towing Jehovah, won the World Fantasy Award in 1995. He currently lives in Pennsylvania with his family.
