A stunning space opera from the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Grand master, Samuel R. Delany.

The balance of galactic power in the 31st century revolves around Illyrion, the most precious energy source in the universe. Captain Lorq van Ray's varied and exotic crew know their mission is dangerous, but they have no idea of Lorq's secret obsession: to gather Illyrion at source by flying through the very heart of an imploding star.

City of a Thousand Suns

Samuel R. Delany

The war was over. The great computer which had arranged and directed the complex military operations of that future nation was to be dismantled. But the computer had become expert in the science of self-defence...and it resisted. The government buildings were blasted. Rockets rained on the great city, and the Empire of Toromon, the first great hope of humanity after the millennia of radiation wreckage, faced disaster at the hands of a super-scientific monster of its own creation. But, unknown even to Toromon's desperate leaders, was the fact that behind the berserk computer lurked the unearthly mind of a real enemy - a foe from the most distant realm of space, intent on making the Earth the first victim of galactic conquest.

The Empire of Toromon had finally declared war. The attacks on its planes had been nothing compared to the final insult - the kidnapping of the Crown Prince. But how would the members of this civilisation - one of the few that survived the Great Fire - get beyond the deadly radiation barrier, behind which the enemy lay? And assuming they got beyond the barrier, how would they deal with that enemy - the Lord of the Flames - whose very presence was unknown to the people among whom he lived?

Their first choice is the planet Velm: a world on which humans co-exist uneasily with the trisauian evelmi - and also the world of Marq Dyeth, for whom Korga is calculated to be the perfect erotic object, to about seven decimal places . . .

Authors:

In an incredible far future, the known laws of Time and Space no longer apply to the world - and the seed of Man has mutated. Lobey is a mutant, different because he can hear the music in people's minds. And when he encounters the beautiful dead-mute, Friza, he knows he has found a kindred soul. Then Friza is killed, by someone or something unknown, and Lobey, driven by a knowledge he does not understand, sets out to bring her back from the dead. His journey leads him to strange lands and stranger people: people such as Spider, the eternal traitor incarnate; the Dove, embodiment of beauty; and Green-Eye, doomed to be the victim of a ritual as old as Time. And always in the background, always waiting, stands the shadow of the chilling, childlike killer from the sea. The being called Kid Death . . .Winner of the Nebula Award for best novel, 1968
