TOM TONER The Weight of the World

The sequel to The Promise of the Child, reviewed as the most important debut sF novel in five years.

An extraordinarily inventive and hugely original SF novel that charts a compelling vision of a future and spins a hypnotic narrative around it. A novel that could command the same amount of attention and furore that met the publication of The Quantum Thief. The richness and originality of its vision combined with its playful take on hard science make this a novel with real commercial potential that will be talked about for years and should launch a major career in SF.

Thomas N. Toner studied fine art and painting in Loughborough before moving to Australia to write. He collects giant fossilized shark teeth, and recently returned to London.
