內容簡介


英國科幻大師伊恩‧班克斯經典大作《遊戲玩家》
「充滿詩意、幽默、困惑、恐懼以及無比的性感。」─《NME雜誌》
「無與倫比的想像空間,打破傳統,感受無限樂趣。」─《Time Out雜誌》

「文明」─一個人類和機器的共生社會─創造了許多偉大的遊戲玩家,而Gurgeh更是遊戲的佼佼者。職業遊戲玩家Gurgeh發明無數遊戲,撰寫研究論文和評論,更在各大遊戲中屢戰屢勝。厭倦永無止盡的勝利,Gurgeh決定前往一個名叫Azad的帝國,殘酷卻又不可置信的富有,Azad這遊戲是如此複雜,就像人生一般難以預測。玩家可在帝國中決定位階,若能掌握就能掌管生命和世界,最終贏家就能成為帝國之王。受到威脅與嘲笑,甚至差點遭到謀殺,Gurgeh不得已接受帝國遊戲的挑戰,甚至進一步挑戰他的人生與性命。

The Culture - a human/machine symbiotic society - has thrown up many great Game Players, and one of the greatest is Gurgeh. Jernau Morat Gurgeh. The Player of Games. Master of every board, computer and strategy. Bored with success, Gurgeh travels to the Empire of Azad, cruel and incredibly wealthy, to try their fabulous game...a game so complex, so like life itself, that the winner becomes emperor. Mocked, blackmailed, almost murdered, Gurgeh accepts the game, and with it the challenge of his life - and very possibly his death.

Praise for Iain M. Banks:
"Poetic, humorous, baffling, terrifying, sexy -- the books of Iain M. Banks are all these things and more" -- NME

"An exquisitely riotous tour de force of the imagination which writes its own rules simply for the pleasure of breaking them." -- Time Out
