O0 by Andrew Joron
In Andrew Joron’s O0, two novellas brilliantly intersect. Through a unique reworking of various New Wave sci-fi tropes, space-time is transmuted into ‘reshuffled narrative pathways, a collage of illogical facades and stairways that end in mid-air’, leaving readers in the midst of a kaleidoscopic zone of meaning more typical of Borges and Calvino than of Stanislaw Lem or William Gibson. O0 is as intellectually challenging as any of the great works of post-modern fiction. It is a book that only Andrew Joron could have written.” — Stephen Paul Martin, author of The Ace of Lightning
