Omega takes us into a fascinating and disturbing vision of the near future, where the most human and endearing character we meet has, it transpires, no real existence at all...
John Stone is a civil engineer, building what is going to be the world's tallest tower -- a "visionary city" above the cloud line over London. He is a man happy in his work and supported by a loving wife and daughter. Then John discovers faith. He does so as a result of what is plainly a miracle. But did a miracle really take place? What if John's whole life is a fiction?
A disturbing tale of science and faith, maths and miracles, love and machines, set in the near future.
