    Help identifying Christopher Priest novel please...

    Hello, Years ago, I read a haunting novel by Christopher Priest. It was set in Britain, and the one thing I remember about the plot was that ALL media content (TV & newspapers) was closely vetted by some shady (government?) agency before being allowed to be seen by the public. I've looked...

    Opinions on Christopher Priest please.

    Hi all: I'm looking for more challenging reads these days – very well written, ideally thought provoking with good characters, maybe something that plays about with narrative structure. I thought of trying The Separation or The Affirmation by Christopher Priest. What do people think? To say...

    Christopher Priest.

    Hello everyone, I recentely picked up copies of The Affermation and The Prestige by this auther. Both from the SF Masterworks series. These are the first works of his that I have read. The Affermation I read quickly and found unsatisfying, The Prestige I have taken my time with, maybe as a...

    Christopher Priest Calls for ACC Award Heads!

    Christopher Priest is pissed and Charles Stross is amused. I have to say, I was debating buying Hull Zero Three and I think Priest has finally convinced me to do so. He's also encouraged others to buy Rule 34 and I wouldn't rule that one out, either. That said, I haven't read anything on the...

    Christopher Priest

    I couldn't find any threads discussing the work of Christopher Priest so I thought I'd start one. I haven't read anything by this author other than a short story entitled "I, Haruspex" which I thought was very good. I would love to hear some recommendations for novels and/or story collections...

    The Affirmation by Christopher Priest

    The Affirmation is the eighth novel by British SF author Christopher Priest, originally published in 1981. As with his later novels The Prestige and moreso The Separation, The Affirmation is a book about identity, truth, perception and perspective which rewards multiple readings and is open to...

    The Separation by Christopher Priest

    'The Separation' technically falls within the increasingly popular sub-genre (or would that be sub-sub-genre?) of alternate histories of World War 2. Since I have written one of those myself (The Foresight War) I read this book with more than usual interest. The overriding impression I formed...
