Queen of Angels

Front Cover
Victor Gollancz Limited, Nov 1, 2010 - Science fiction - 373 pages
28 Reviews

In a perfect future a famous poet commits terrible murder. WHY?

That crime and that question lead a biotransformed policewoman to a jungle of torture and forgotten gods; a writer to the Bohemian shadows of a vast city; and a scientist directly into the mind - into the nightmare soul - of the psychopath himself.

This is science fiction at its best: a detective story, a story of virtual reality entrapments and the coming to consciousness of an Artificial Intelligence . . .

About the author (2010)

Greg Bear is one of the great figures of contemporary SF. Winner of both the HUGO and the NEBULA AWARDS, his classic novel EON (part of the Masterworks list) was one of the high concept, grand scale SF novels that reinvented the genre in the 1980s. His novel BLOOD MUSIC is a uniquely uplifting apocalyptic novel about evolution overtaking humanity. He lives in the USA.
