Summary

Summary

Aristide, a semi-retired computer scientist turned swordsman, is a scholar of the implied spaces, seeking meaning amid the accidents of architecture in a universe where reality itself has been sculpted and designed by superhuman machine intelligence. While exploring the pre-technological world Midgarth, one of four dozen pocket universes created within a series of vast, orbital matrioshka computer arrays, Aristide uncovers a fiendish plot threatening to set off a nightmare scenario, perhaps even bringing about the ultimate existential crisis: the end of civilization itself.

Traveling the pocket universes with his wormhole-edged sword Tecmessa in hand and talking cat Bitsy, avatar of the planet-sized computer Endora, at his side, Aristide must find a way to save the multiverse from subversion, sabotage, and certain destruction.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A far-future science-fiction yarn that employs sword-and-sorcery trappings to investigate philosophical questions…An intelligent, delicate, and precise novel of real depth: a pleasure to read, an undertaking to savor.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Implied Spaces is a thoughtful work of world building and an engaging mystery.” Booklist
“The versatile author of Voice of the Whirlwind and other hard sf and cyberpunk novels now uses the trappings of fantasy to explore some of science’s most sophisticated ideas. Ever surprising, ever provocative, Williams’ latest sf adventure belongs in most sf collections.” Library Journal
“In this grandly scaled space opera…Williams tells the tale with enthusiasm and a crisp, dry wit well suited to this entertaining blend of high adventure, intrigue and postsingularity technology.” Publishers Weekly
