Summary
"Now, in Spin's direct sequel, Wilson takes us to the "world next door" - the planet engineered by the mysterious Hypotheticals to support human life, and connected to Earth by way of the Arch that towers hundreds of miles over the Indian Ocean. Humans are colonizing this new world - and, predictably, fiercely exploiting its resources, chiefly large deposits of oil in the western deserts of the continent of Equatoria." "Use Adams is a young woman attempting to uncover the mystery of her father's disappearance twelve years earlier. Turk Findley is an ex-sailor and drifter. They come together when an infall of cometary dust seeds the planet with tiny remnant Hypothetical machines." "Now Lise, Turk, a Martian woman, and a boy who has been engineered to communicate with the Hypotheticals are drawn to a place in the desert where this seemingly hospitable world has become suddenly very alien indeed - and the nature of time is once again being twisted by entities unknown."--BOOK JACKET
