Set in the Eight Worlds universe 200 years after humanity is exiled from the Earth by aliens. ".... the most vigorous novel [Varley] has written since The Ophiuchi Hotline .... For those who may have wondered where John Varley has been and where he is now, Varley's newest novel speaks loud and clear."- Locus, June 1992. "The plot is in effect Varley's excuse to give the reader a guided tour of a marvel-filled new world." - Barron (ed) Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-469. "We differ from the first lungfish that left the water of the oceans for the surface of the Earth mainly in that our beach is steel, not sand. " - Clute, Science Fiction: The Illustrated Encyclopedia, Classics of the 1990's, pg. 235. Varley is also the author of the acclaimed Demon trilogy and the SF novel The Golden Globe (1998), a novel so big the invading aliens are a minor theme.
