About the Book

**This novel won the Philip K. Dick Memorial Special Award for “Best Novel in the English Language.”**

Here is a powerful novel, at once disturbing and compelling—the chronicle of one man’s odyssey of self-discovery within a world at war.

In a world of ever-worsening crisis, Angelo Osic is an anomaly: a man who cares about others. One day he aids a stranger … and calls down disaster, for the woman called Tamara is also a woman on the run, the only human with the knowledge that will save Earth from the artificial intelligences plotting to overthrow it. Fleeing the assassins who seek him as well as Tamara, Angelo seizes the only escape route available: to sign on as a mercenary with the Japanese Motoki Corporation in its genocidal war against the barbarian Yabajin. Jacked into training machines that simulate warfare, Angelo “dies” a hundred times … and is resurrected to fight again. In a world of death, he dreams only of life—and the freedom to love once more.
