From the World Fantasy Award-winning author of LAGOON comes THE BOOK OF THE PHOENIX, sequel to WHO FEARS DEATH: an extraordinary science fiction novel set in a distant - but not so very different - future. There is no book about me. Well, not yet. No matter. I shall create it myself; it's better that way. My beginnings were in the dark. We all dwelled in the darkness, mad scientist and specimen alike. This was when the goddess Ani's still slept, when her back was still turned. Before she grew angry at what she saw and pulled in the blazing sun. My story is called The Book of Phoenix. 'Lagoon is a triumph of a novel, it is an evocative thought provoking read, full of beautiful writing that will lift your spirits one minute only to dash them like a piece of flotsam against a coral reef the next.' - Ginger Nuts of Horror
