Empire Games

Hugo Award-winning author Charles Stross returns to the Merchant Princes universe in Empire Games, the first in a trilogy of gripping techno-thrillers featuring parallel worlds on the brink of war. It’s the perfect entry-point for readers new to Charles Stross as well as existing fans. Featuring inter-dimensional political intrigue, espionage and state surveillance, the series is ideal for anyone who loved The Man in the High Castle, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, or the works of Iain Banks. ‘Stross's ferociously imaginative world-building is on full display here . . . few other writers can match him for humour, creativity and sheer density of ideas.’ SFX
