The Galaxy Game

The Galaxy Game

The sequel to critically acclaimed The Best of All Possible Worlds from award-winning Barbadian writer Karen Lord.

For years, Rafi Delarua watched his family suffer under his father’s unethical use of psionic power. Now the government has Rafi under surveillance. Hating their crude attempts to analyse his brain, he escapes to the planet Punartam, where his abilities are the norm, not the exception. Punartam is also the centre for his favourite sport, wallrunning – and thanks to his best friend, he discovers a way to train with the elite.
But soon Rafi realises he’s playing quite a different game.

The galaxy is changing; unrest is spreading and the Zhinuvian cartels are plotting, making the stars a far more dangerous place to aim. There may yet be one solution – involving interstellar travel, galactic power and the love of a beautiful game.

Reviews

every bit the book The Best of All Possible Worlds was: a smart science fictional fable as inventive and involving as it is finally vital
tor.com
a leisurely exploration of multiple societies, power-politics and race relations . . . The Galaxy Game will only add to her [Karen Lord's] considerable reputation
Guardian
Lord writes social science fiction reminiscent of Ursula Le Guin . . . I would recommend both The Best of All Possible Worlds and The Galaxy Game to anybody who craves mature social science fiction
