Publisher's Blurb
The world of Helward Mann is not as it should be. But at the age of six hundred and fifty miles, it’s time he learnt to live with contradiction. And so, emerging from the safety of Earth city, Helward begins to comprehend the predicament of his people – and to experience for himself the inescapable effects of his inverted world; a planet of infinite size within a finite universe….

A brilliantly conceived excursion into the realms of paradox and distorted perception, Inverted World is one of Christopher Priest’s most accomplished science fiction novels.

Among the most acclaimed young writers in British sf, CHRISTOPHER PRIEST started writing full-time in 1968. He has since written five sf novels, including Fugue for a Darkening Island and The Space Machine. His latest novel, The Glamour, was published in 1984.
