Description de l’éditeur

The World Fantasy Award–winning author of Doctor Rat offers “an entertaining trip through an exotic future” as the rich and powerful pursue immortality (Booklist).
 
Deep in the bowels of Junk Moon, the finest scientists of Planet Immortal are nearing completion of Project Amphora, which aims to unlock the secret of life everlasting. The Project is run by the Consortium, twelve of the planet’s most influential movers and shakers, but they aren’t the only ones after immortality. Commander Jockey Oldcastle, a wise-cracking space pirate, has heard about the Amphora Project from a banished scientist who is convinced it will lead to the end of the world. Oldcastle sets off to find the project, only to find himself unraveling a strange mystery: It seems the Amphora Project is turning the citizens of Planet Immortal into crystal. As time runs out, it is up to Oldcastle, his botanist partner Link—and Link’s exotic, unlikely love interest—to stop an extradimensional enemy before their world is lost forever.
 
The Amphora Project “twists along at breakneck pace”, combining elements of science fiction and fantasy while transcending the boundaries of both (Publishers Weekly).
 
“Full of weird tech and plenty of heroics and adventure in the company of bizarre creatures.” —Booklist
