Description

The alternate timelines of Charles Stross' Empire Games trilogy have never been so entangled than in Invisible Sun—the techno-thriller follow up to Dark State—as stakes escalate in a conflict that could spell extermination for humanity across all known timelines.
An inter-timeline coup d'état gone awry.
A renegade British monarch on the run through the streets of Berlin.
And robotic alien invaders from a distant timeline flood through a wormhole, wreaking havoc in the USA.
Can disgraced worldwalker Rita and her intertemporal extraordaire agent of a mother neutralize the livewire contention before it's too late?

      • bioText:

        CHARLES STROSS (he/him) is a full-time science fiction writer and resident of Edinburgh, Scotland. He has won three Hugo Awards for Best Novella, including for the Laundry Files tale "Equoid." His work has been translated into over twelve languages. His novels include the bestselling Merchant Princes series, the Laundry series (including Locus Award finalist The Dilirium Brief), and several stand-alones including Glasshouse, Accelerando, and Saturn's Children.
        Like many writers, Stross has had a variety of careers, occupations, and job-shaped catastrophes, from pharmacist (he quit after the second police stakeout) to first code monkey on the team of a successful dot-com startup (with brilliant timing, he tried to change employers just as the bubble burst) to technical writer and prolific journalist covering the IT industry. Along the way he collected degrees in pharmacy and computer science, making him the world's first officially qualified cyberpunk writer.

        August 20, 2021
        The long-awaited final book in Stross' Empire Games series finds the surprises unleashed in Dark State (2018) playing out in unpredictable ways. Helping the Princess of the French Empire defect to the American Commonwealth (AC) hit a snag in the Berlin of this alternate time line, where the United States security people intercepted her handler. Now she is roaming an unfamiliar Berlin. To find her, the AC has enlisted natives of that time line who helped raise Rita Douglas, the daughter of Miriam Burgeson, who is a commissioner of the AC. At this point, it's no surprise that Rita is a double agent, a world-walker who was sent to the AC time line to gather information for the U.S. but is rushed into use by her mother's people to impersonate the princess. The U.S. para-travel agencies are also dealing with an invasion of an abandoned time-line version of Earth by a synthetic-based species that doesn't desire communication, only annihilation. The first flight of the AC's Juggernaut, a para-time travel space vehicle that uses dozens of nuclear explosives maneuver from a dead time line to live time lines, also plays out. How Stross ties everything up is a genuine wonderment and delight.
