It's a scifi novel, it's a spy novel, it's an alt-history where the Brits discovered how to communicate with the dead during WWI and WWII never happened. It's pretty dense with made-up technology (ectogun, aetheric hypercube, etc) and never walks you quite through what all these things are supposed to be. Some of this is fun, some of it is a drag. The actual writing and plot is... fine. This fits in 100% solidly with my scifi push-pull: interesting ideas, mostly noninteresting writing. Oh well.
