Hugo Award-winning author Charles Stross delivers 'credible and bold SF' (Science Fiction Weekly) that continually pushes the boundaries of the genre. With Glasshouse, Stross pens a Kafkaesque tale set in a 27th century of teleport gates and mind-attacking network worms. After Robin awakes in a clinic, he struggles to summon details of his life, but too many of his memories have been wiped clean. More troubling is the stark awareness of immediate danger: someone is trying to kill him. On the run, Robin makes a desperate gamble and volunteers for what he hopes is the sanctuary of an unusual study at the Glasshouse. Once there, however, he realizes the true terror has only begun. Stross pulls out all the stops in a searing adventure that will keep listeners' hearts racing. Propelled by Kevin R. Free's riveting narration, Glasshouse is a novel SF fans will not soon forget.
