Stations of the Tide - Michael Swanwick

Nebula Award 1991, Hugo Award nominee 1992.

From author Michael Swanwick – one of the most brilliantly assured and darkly inventive writers of contemporary fiction – comes a masterwork of radically altered realities and world-shattering seductions.

The Jubilee Tides will drown the continents of the planet Miranda beneath the weight of her own oceans. But as the once-in-two-centuries cataclysm approaches, an even greater catastrophe threatens this dark and dangerous planet of tale-spinners, conjurers, and shapechangers.

A man from the Bureau of Proscribed Technologies has been sent to investigate. For Gregorian has come, a genius renegade scientist and charismatic bush wizard. With magic and forbidden technology, he plans to remake the rotting, dying world in his own evil image – and to force whom or whatever remains on its diminishing surface toward a terrifying and astonishing confrontation with death and transcendence.
