"A showcase for Green's bone-dry satire and deadpan humour ... Green's agile imagination constantly wrong-foots the reader. A delight."
-Peter Ingham, The Telegraph
"The work of a talented writer having lots of very smart fun"
-- S F Winser, Booksquawk.com
Smallworld is like nothing you've ever read before... truly innovative speculative fiction from Hugo-nominated Brit SF writer Dominic Green.
Mount Ararat isn't your average extrasolar agrarian colony. A world the size of an asteroid yet having Earth-standard gravity, Mount Ararat plays host to a strangely confident family whose children are protected by the Devil, a mechanical killing machine, from such passers-by as Mr von Trapp (an escapee from a penal colony), the Made (manufactured humans being hunted by the State), and the super-rich clients of a gravitational health spa established at Mount Ararat's South Pole. But it soon transpires that the Devil is harbouring an ancient and deadly secret.
Enjoyed Smallworld? Its sequel Littlestar hugely expands on the universe established in the first book, with an astounding story arc that follows troopers Beguiled-of-the-Serpent and Only-Begotten as they become embroiled in the second star-spanning war against the Made.
