The Centauri Device, Paperback / softback Book

The Centauri Device Paperback / softback

Part of the S.F. Masterworks series


John Truck was to outward appearances just another lowlife spaceship captain.

But he was also the last of the Centaurans - or at least, half of him was - which meant that he was the only person who could operate the Centauri Device, a sentient bomb which might hold the key to settling a vicious space war. M. John Harrison's classic novel turns the conventions of space opera on their head, and is written with the precision and brilliance for which is famed.
