Pangaea, Book I: Imperium Without End
Book One of a powerful visionary epic from a celebrated voice in science fiction. Pangaea, an ancient world stabilized over millennia by the laws of the all-powerful Imperium, prides itself as the apex of civilization. Society is divided into rigid castes, entertained by state-controlled dreams, and kept “pure” by state-run genetic laboratories. But the global landmass of Pangaea is shaking with cataclysmic earthshocks foretold by the Oracle, forbidden passions infiltrate the sharemind of the Imperium, and the ancient order is threatened by desperate and violent revolutionaries.
