THE CRYSTAL COSMOS by Rhys Hughes, intro by Michael Bishop. Hornsea, East Yorkshire, UK; PS Publishing; 2007. 1st edition PPC (pictorial printed covers).

Synopsis / Contents:

In an infinity of universes, where everything must happen, there exists one cosmos that is particularly strange. And not only strange but of immeasurable value...

When interstellar politics faces a new kind of metaphysics the outcome of the struggle is always in doubt. Beautiful Sappho Ritsos has an immense responsibility on her shoulders, for she has been charged with the task of saving a solar system made of solid diamond from the most seductive and manipulative space pirate in the history of commerce. Peace on two separate Earths is at stake, the economies of nations and the sanity of humanity itself! But how does all this concern a simple goatherd and a man made of bronze?

The Crystal Cosmos is Rhys Hughes at his inimitable best, high-concept space opera to die for.

Fine in pictorial covers without dj as issued. Limited to 500 copies SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
