About this product
- DescriptionChristopher Priest's artful sleight of hand when it comes to manipulating the experience of his books and tions of what is real reaches a peak in this vel that accounts the trials and tribulations of a group of people who have escaped into a utopian shared virtual reality kwn 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 vels.
