THE QUANTUM THIEF. Hannu Rajaniemi.


New York: Tor, (2011). First U.S. edition. Hardcover. The debut science fiction novel by Hannu Rajaniemi and the first novel in a trilogy featuring Jean le Flambeur; the sequels are The Fractal Prince and The Causal Angel. It was published in Britain by Gollancz in 2010, and by Tor in 2011 in the US. Not only is this book a breathtaking joyride through the solar system several centuries hence, a world of marching cities, ubiquitous public-key encryption, people who communicate via shared memory, and a race of hyperadvanced humans who originated as an MMORPG guild. But for all its wonders, it is also a story powered by the very human motives of betrayal, jealousy, and revenge. A fine copy in dust jacket. Item #14099
