Book cover of Eye of the Tyger

Released November 2003
Publisher: Telos
By Paul McAuley

Inhabiting a colony spaceship in the thirty-second century are members of a religious cult which left Earth to find a world of their own. Their leader, Seraph, has downloaded his mind into the ship's computers, but now he has gone silent, enticed and serenaded by a siren song coming from inside a black hole.

Trapped in orbit around the void, Seraph's followers are confused by his silence, and when the Doctor arrives, he finds a world on the brink of chaos.

The book, which features a foreword written by Neil Gaiman, is being published by Telos in three editions: a standard hardback with cloth-effect cover and foil-stamped logo and title, a signed and numbered limited edition deluxe hardback; and a limited quantity special edition.

The deluxe and special editions also include a full colour frontispiece illustration by Jim Burns, and come signed by the author, frontispiece artist and foreword writer.
