The Fourth Circle

(1994)
A novel by

 
 
At long last, the brilliant first novel from World Fantasy Award winning author, Zoran Zivkovic is being published in English. The Fourth Circle takes the reader on an amazing journey from frescoed medieval monasteries to Buddhist temples to different planets to a paralyzed scientist's bedroom in London to the edge of black hole at the far reaches of the universe to a place not all the dissimilar from 221 B Baker Street. Zivkovic's masterful voice cradles the reader safely from one place to the next and in the end deposits the reader carefully at the singular spot in which all the storylines coincide. The Ministry of Whimsy edition of The Fourth Circle concludes with an afterword by Zivkovic about the travails of writing his first novel, translating it into English, and then finding a publisher for it. All while war in Zivkovic's native Serbia surrounded him.

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Zoran Zivkovic is a subtle, intelligent, wonderfully inventive writer who brings a fresh point of view, an idiosyncratic angle of attack, to everything he produces. He is one of the finest writers currently at work in the 'New Europe.' Read him and celebrate." - Michael Moorcock
