Set in the artificial planetary system of Chalco-Doror, which is no more and no less than a vast cosmic machine, The Last Legends of Earth is a love story, a gripping saga of struggle against alien control, and an examination of the machinery of creation and destruction. Above all, it is world-building of the highest and grandest order, on a scale rarely seen in science fiction since the great works of Olaf Stapledon.
“A grand and glorious visionary epic, which floods the reader with wonders—The thing that science fiction is supposed to achieve but all too rarely does. I loved it.”—Robert Silverberg
