Orbitsville by Bob Shaw


"His finest early inspiration... an exciting story of political intrigue and exploration"
-The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

"Brilliantly realized... continuously fascinating"
-Martin Amis, Observer

When the young son of Elizabeth Lindstrom, the autocratic president of Starflight, falls to his death, Vance Garamond, a flickerwing commander, is the obvious target for Elizabeth's grief and anger. She is not a forgiving employer and Garamond has no choice but to flee.

But fleeing Elizabeth's wrath means leaving the Solar System behind for ever and hiding somewhere in deep space.

Pursued remoreselessly by Earth's space fleet, the 'somewhere' that Garamond discovers is an unimaginably vast, alien-built, spherical structure which could just change the destiny of the human race.
