A DREAM OF WESSEX
Release Date: 13 November
Author: Christopher Priest Publisher: Gollancz First published in 1977, Christopher Priest’s fifth novel tackles some fascinating metaphysical questions about memory, consciousness and reality. It concerns a group of scientists who pool their minds to project a virtual reality simulation of a 22nd century Britain where the southwest of England has ( due to some serious earthquakes) broken away from the rest of the country. Related in unflowery, straightforward prose, it will probably appeal to fans of Philip K Dick.
