One of science fiction's premiere stylists, M. John Harrison has received abundant praise and awards for his wildly imaginative ideas and transcendent prose. Now he returns to the richly complex universe of Light and Nova Swing with a stunning new novel that braids three glittering strands into a tapestry that spans vast reaches of time and space.

In the near future, an elderly English widow is stirred from her mundane existence by surreal omens and visitations. Centuries later, the space freighter Nova Swing takes on an illegal alien artifact as cargo, with consequences beyond reckoning. While on a distant planet, a nameless policewoman tries to bring order to an event zone where ordinary physics do not apply, only to find herself caught up in something even stranger and more sublime. . . .

The summary on the back cover was a bit strange but looked promising. As I made my way through the 1st third, it was very disjointed and nothing seemed related to anything else, but since the cover promised they would all come together, I kept reading even though I wasn't enjoying it. By the last word on the last page, all I feel is robbed and disappointed. This author promised to write 3 stories that would come together and what he made was 3 stories that not only don't but also mean nothing at all by themselves. DON'T read this Book!!
