About the book:

On a far-future Earth, where vast deserts - ecological disaster areas - surround walled city-states slowly losing their grip on advanced technology, the mysterious Quin manipulates biological engineering to create sentient species as both toys and manual labour. When Nicholas, a failed holo artist, decides to visit Quin, he - along with his programmer sister Nicola and her former lover, Shadrach - will discover just how dangerous it is to know Quin - in the place known as Veniss Underground. 'Visionary episodes come thicker and faster, and at times the author only barely controls his own invention ...The denouement is as powerful as any I have read' - "Michael Moorcock", "Guardian". 'An outstanding first novel brimming with startling ideas' - "Scotsman". 'A dark, phantasmagoric tale that echoes Dante's Divine Comedy, the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, and the landscapes of Hieronymus Bosch' - "Publishers Weekly".
