"The most prolific and gifted writer in the [popular science] genre." Peter Forbes, The Author

The Sun and Moon Corrupted, a book by Philip Ball

"How do you write a novel about science? Many people do it badly, but with 'The Sun and Moon Corrupted', Philip Ball succeeds at his first attempt. Six steps lead to a good read, and Ball has aced them all."Nature


"Ball has still written a fine novel which achieves a kind of well-wrought luminescence and purity of its own: much like the glowing result of an alchemical experiment." The New Humanist


"Neder is as elusive, crazed and compelling as Nabokov’s John Shade."Financial Times


"…another fine piece of pop science."Daily Telegraph


"Philip Ball is one of the smartest science writers working in Britain… I was gripped and entertained for much of the journey… Eastern Europe is richly evoked…"The Independent


"Rich and entertaining... [Ball] certainly appears at home in his new surroundings. There is certainly plenty to take in, but the book is all the more stimulating for it."Physics World
