A Dream of Wessex
Christopher Priest's artful sleight of hand when it comes to manipulating the experience of his books and notions of what is real reaches a peak in this novel that accounts the trials and tribulations of a group of people who have escaped into a utopian shared virtual reality known as Wessex. It is a world engineered to give them their every desire. But when one woman becomes subject to the violent attentions of a man who feels that she is everything he desires she must decide to fight back. Obsession and abuse of power can cross from the real world to the imagined all too easily. Thought by some to have been instrumental in the inspiration of the film INCEPTION, A DREAM OF WESSEX is a classic in the literature of virtual realities and remains one of Chris Priest's most highly regarded novels.

Prayer of the Dragon
“ Surprises and mysteries abound here. This novel taught me more about Tibet—modern and ancient—than I had managed to learn elsewhere over the years.”—The Washington Post “Frightening and unforgettable.”—Publishers Weekly “Stories wrapped around other stories brocaded with abundant local color and told with leisure and elegance form a heady literary tapestry.”—Kirkus Reviews “Once again, Edgar Award winner Pattison demonstrates his mastery.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Fascinating. . . . Pattison writes convincingly of Tibetan culture and religion, Chinese-Tibetan politics, Himalayan geography and Navajo religious beliefs, while giving his characters believable personalities.”—The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA) Summoned to a remote village from the hidden lamasery where he lives, Shan, formerly an investigator in Beijing, must save a comatose man from execution for two murders in which the victims’ arms have been removed. Upon arrival, he discovers that the suspect is not Tibetan but Navajo. The man has come with his niece to seek ancestral ties between their people and the ancient Bon. The recent murders are only part of a chain of deaths. Together with his friends, the monks Gendun and Lokesh, Shan solves the riddle of Dragon Mountain, the place “where the world begins.” Eliot Pattison is an international lawyer based near Philadelphia. His four previous Shan novels, set in Tibet—The Skull Mantra (St. Martin’s Press, 1999), Water Touching Stone (2001), Bone Mountain (2002) and Beautiful Ghosts (2004)—have been critical and commercial successes. He won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel and was nominated for the Crime Writers’ Association Golden Dagger Award.
