Praise for Ninefox Gambit Beautiful, brutal and full of the kind of off-hand inventiveness that the best SF trades in, Ninefox Gambit is an effortlessly accomplished SF novel. Yoon Ha Lee has arrived in spectacular fashion. Alastair Reynolds I love Yoons work Ninefox Gambit is solidly and satisfyingly full of battles and political intrigue, in a beautifully built far-future that manages to be human and alien at the same time. It should be a treat for readers already familiar with Yoons ...

David Walton SUPERSYMMETRY To Karen My theory of everything PROLOGUE Jacob Kelley spent the last minutes of his life at a baseball game. He hadnt been to Citizens Bank Park in years, not since his children were young, and he reveled in the vivid hue of the brightly lit Kentucky bluegrass, the low roar of the crowd, the squeak of hinged seats, and the smell of popcorn and beer. The stadium was aging now, no longer the sparkling novelty it had been in his youth. In the eighth inning, the Phillies ...
