MORTAL REMAINS OR HEIRS OF THE NOOSPHERE. London: Victor Gollancz, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed by Evans. "An exuberant, slightly overcomplicated space opera set in a densely crowded solar system, known by the innumerable humans who inhabit as the Noöspace, and who deem its quasi-sentient multifariousness to be a fairly exact analogue of the AI-dominated noösphere into which dead intelligences are elected. Earth itself is inhabited by relicts of those humans who, long before, chose to adapt themselves to the abundance of the worlds, rather than transforming reality to befit unmodified stock." - John Clute, The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#93329).
