A modern masterpiece from 'One of the genre's great ideas men'' (THE TIMES) nelwy packaged for a new audience
Cass has stumbled on something that might be an entirely different type of physics and she's travelled three hundred and fifty light-years to Mimosa Station, a remote experimental facility, to test her theory.
The novo-vacuum she creates is predicted to begin decaying the instant it's created, but even so short-lived a microscopic speck could shed new light on the origins of the universe. But instead of decaying, Cass's novo-vacuum is wildly successful and begins expanding, slowly but inexorably taking over the universe...
SCHILD'S LADDER is a wild ride through the far future by one of the world's most respected and acclaimed writers.
