The city of Sumer is a world without a horizon, bound by a wall that encloses it entirely. The novel follows Mithila and her friends, as they search for meaning: who built the Wall? Why does it exist? And can they imagine a world without it?
Gautam Bhatia is a science fiction writer, reviewer, and editor with the award-winning Strange Horizons magazine. The Wall is his debut novel, and the first book in a duology. He would like you to know that his day job in a black gown and a band has as much place in The Wall as a Kindle in a bookshop: that is, none at all.
