Inverted World (eBook): Priest, Christopher: The city is winched along tracks through a devastated land full of hostile tribes. Rails must be freshly laid ahead of the city and carefully removed in its wake. Rivers and mountains present nearly insurmountable challenges to the ingenuity of the city's engineers. But if the city does not move, it will fall farther and farther behind the optimum.

  The first 3 sections of the book were almost exactly what I expected, laying out a society a couple centuries into facing a really intriguing set of circumstances. Priest tends to treat hard SF concepts with a delicate touch I appreciate, and Inverted World was no different. I loved what he did with the science up to this point/5(). The original Omnibus LP of "Oh, Inverted World" is a different mastering to the common Sub Pop LP, but it is in no way superior. The content is identical, but the cutting is very bass-shy and a bit sibilant and distorted. A great collector piece but stick to your standard edition for listening.
