Brian Aldiss

An Age

Publisher’s Blurb
This splendid piece of psychological science fiction represents a sustained act of imagination. It operates on several different levels, right from the opening scenes on a prehistoric shore, to Buckingham Palace (where, in a moment of black comedy, Bush disappears up Queen Victoria’s skirts, to the alien perspectives of uncreated time.

Brian Says

A novel that did not entirely hatch, the parts being better than the whole.It did serve, however, as a warning signal that Aldiss had begun writing novels that involved art as much as science.
