Product description

Review

"It's a pity the word 'awesome' has been misused to the point of meaninglessness: it would once have been an ideal description of "Count To A Trillion." Instead, I'll say that the novel came perilously close to overloading my capacity for wonder, burning out all my 'gosh' circuits--and Ive been reading science fiction assiduously since 1954.

"Spectacularly clever... in weaving together cutting edge speculation along the outer fringes of science. Highly impressive."--"Kirkus"

"R.A.Lafferty meets A.E.VanVogt in a cakewalk through a future full of anti-matter, alien artifacts, transhumans, an Iron Ghost, a Texas gunfighter, and a Space Princess. Well worth the price of admission." --Michael Flynn

"An elegant stylist and a true visionary, Wright will delight hard sf fans with his exuberance, while his characters and plot keep the action fast and furious." --"Library Journal"

"This is much more than a space opera, and fills your mind with intriguing, startling possibilities. John Wright's novel is bursting with ideas, blending mythology, machine and human evolution, mathematics, space travel, and much more. The hero, Montrose, is caught in the crosshairs of deadly, highly un
