THE RAPTURE EFFECT. [New York]: Tor, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Sequel to THE INFINITY LINK (1984), "a large and ambitious recasting of his abiding material –- space epic venues, striving human protagonists in transcendental communion with aliens or AI s –- into the tale of a human woman Telepathically linked with a passing interstellar race. THE RAPTURE EFFECT (1987) brought the Arts into the mix, suggesting in the end that a secret war between a human-built AI and its distant alien counterpart might be resolved, finally, through the mediation of some ambitious human artists." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket (#22537).
