City of the Iron Fish

Simon Ings

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Science fiction

A riveting gothic SF adventure set in a bizarre desert city from one of our most acclaimed authors.

Simon Ings has written a surreal adventure probing the very fabric of existence, tearing it open to reveal a sometimes horrifying world within. It is a work that will delight any fan of China Mieville.

Only a fool would question the strange magics that maintain the cool haven of the City of the Iron Fish in the middle of an inferno of scorching heat and splintered rock, for the well-watered streets of the city hide secrets in their shadows.
Thomas Kemp is just such a fool...

And embarks on a journey that will take him to the limits of reality. It may kill him, worse, that may not be enough. Especially as it is his only friend, Blythe, who may discover the secret of the city's isolation.
