Book Description

In a depressed mill town, out of work history teacher Jonathan Strange has reached a low point in a life liberally pockmarked with low points.

On a planet many light-years distant, isolated bands of natives offer human sacrifices to their gods.

Deep in the galactic core ancient beings make a decision that will profoundly affect the future of humanity.

In the velvet darkness between the stars a nova-born lump of cosmic slag is on a collision course with a populated space station.

These events are threads of a tapestry that bind Jonathan Strange to his destiny.

A patient and resourceful thinking machine, its purpose known only to its ancient makers, created a prophecy. Now that prophecy is about to be fulfilled in the person of Jonathan Strange. It will lead him from beggar to king—from the bleak winter of his despair to the golden summer of his eventual triumph, and slightly beyond.
