Lord Soho

(2002)
A Time Opera
A novel by

 
 
Richard Calder is one of science fiction's most original writers. In Lord Soho he returns to the universe of Malignos, travelling the lands of Earth and the gates of Time, in a book only he could have conceived and written. It is a tour-de-force of intelligence, imagination and story-telling. 'On my twenty-first birthday I killed a man. It was during my maiden speech in the Lords.' Thus speaks Richard Pike the Third, grandson of the first Pike and his Malignos wife, Gala. Through the centuries, many Pikes bear the marks of that cross-race marriage. Beginning and ending in London's Soho, Richard Calder's latest novel tells the family saga, through stories based on operas, myths and folk tales. Through the winding (and winding down) of Time and the eventual rediscovery of humanity's destiny, a line of Richard Pikes tell their tales - and with them record the drunkard's walk of Man's history over millennia.
