pangaea1Pangaea, 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.

May, 1999 (Bantam Spectra Books)

“Mason’s tale is filled with an operatic assemblage of exotic characters, dramatic events, and glorious language.” The Philadelphia Inquirer

 

pangaea2Pangaea, Book II: Imperium Afire

Book Two in an epic of astonishing originality by one of the most imaginative voices in science fiction. Includes the complete Orb of Eternity and all thirty of Tom Robinson’s drawings of the Facets.

A world in cataclysm. A tyranny in turmoil. An ancient oracle foretelling apocalypse—or redemption.
