TITLE: The Library Of Forgotten Books
A NOVELLA LENGTH COLLECTION by Rjurik Davidson
PUBLICATION DATE: July 2011
In this collection, PS Publishing presents the short works of a powerful, exciting new voice in SF and fantasy: Rjurik Davidson, whose protagonists wander dark cities of dreams, ravished by love and tormented by destiny...
Visit the fantastic metropolis of Caeli-Amur, where rival Houses of thaumaturgists — half scientist, half magician — battle one another in vendetta, espionage, and murder, ruthlessly employing philosopher-assassins: killers weighed down one minute by deep thought, uplifted the next by pure ecstasy. Enter the totalitarian city of Varenis, whose librarians every week consign thousands of forbidden books to obscure shelves, in halls haunted by dead writers, half-ghost, half-demon...
Voyage to an alternate post-World War Two Australia, whose vast inland sea has made her one of the world's Great Powers; there, in a Melbourne colossal beyond conception, criminals, communists, and government agents weave shadowy conspiracies only a weary veteran private eye can hope to penetrate. And holiday in a French resort whose cinema offers patrons fugitive glimpses of their countless possible futures, torturing them with hope, exhilarating them with despair...
These are the visions of Rjurik Davidson: cogently atmospheric, psychologically profound, boundlessly imaginative.
