Walter Jon Williams really knows how to play power chords in the 'key of wonder' and in Implied Spaces he's gone to town on the guitar solo!"--Charles Stross" Implied Spaces pioneers a new genre of SF--- the 'Sword and Singularity' novel. Williams combines fantasy tropes believably with nanotech, bleeding-edge infotech speculation, classic smashing-planets space opera, and intriguingly human, or possibly post-human characters along with a fast-moving plot and a quirky sense of humor in a melance that's cosmological, theological, ontological, comic, and thoroughly entertaining."---S.M. StirlingThe mysterious swordsman Aristide wanders the multiverse with his talking cat Bitsy, both of them in search of the "implied spaces," the accidents of architecture in a world that is itself artificial and created by a supreme intelligence. While exploring the pre-technological world of Midgarth, Aristide discovers a plot that threatens to shake the multiverse to its foundations, a sinister enemy intent on laying all humanity in his thrall. Aristide must surmount war, plague, death, the loss of love, and cosmic havoc in order to finally confront the enemy, whose secret brings all reality into questions . . . --Provided by publisher.

This is another of Williams's fine body of work. As a tale with mystery, intrigue and adventure, it moves nicely along in its science fiction universe. The author has universe where no one really dies and worlds are manufacture with ease and diversity- even some worlds might have different laws of physics.

Another trademark of a Walter Jon Williams tale is that it can explore big ideas that are almost too big to grasp. When he's at his best, those ideas can make my brain hurt. I was taxed again with this work, and am grateful for the headache.

The concept of implied spaces is at once logical and magical. I'll leave it up to the reader to discover this way of seeing the world. That in itself makes this a worthwhile read.
