Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Hardcover, first printing and true first edition. (The first US edition was published in paperback by Eos in February 2005.) Debut novel with a great pre-publication blurb by Mieville, describing the book as "one of the ten key New Weird titles." Ariel from The Alien Online describes this debut novel as "an astonishingly detailed and gorgeously realised fantasy scenario." And "[Swainston] transgresses supposed genre protocols (sequences of horror and surrealism mixed with large tracts of fantasy, with just enough airholes to permit a science-fictional reading), but the manner in which it invents and unfolds its own story, with a focus that grows sharper and more compelling as the narrative grows." - Gary K. Wolfe, Locus, May 2004. Cheryl Morgan at Emerald City writes "The book is a fantasy novel, but it is quite unlike any fantasy you will have read before." Award History: 2004 William L. Crawford Award Winner for best new fantasy writer Steph Swainston for The Year of Our War; Locus 2004 Recommended Reading List: First Novels.
