Read full description of the books:
THE MILLENNIAL WAR LEFT A SULLEN VOID WHERE CIVILIZATION ONCE STOOD..But then the whales began their song--a mysterious song that resounded throughtout the polluted seas & told an ancient hearbreaking tale that moved the survivors to revive an honored ritual..And at the vanguard stood Takahashi, self-appointed Death Lord--a man gone mad in the wake of the chaos. He saw himself an artist whose greatest creation was a living haiku, w/a last line as exquisite as it was final--the end of all human life. Only one chance remained for josh Nakamura, for his younger brother Didi, & for Ryoko, the beautiful daughter of a high minister of Japan. They must take the whale's legacy & leave the planet before they too became part of Takahashi's terrible poetic vision.

Read information about the authorCalled by the Bangkok Post "the Thai person known by name to most people in the world," S.P. Somtow is an author, composer, filmmaker, and international media personality whose dazzling talents and acerbic wit have entertained and enlightened fans the world over.
He was Somtow Papinian Sucharitkul in Bangkok. His grandfather's sister was a Queen of Siam, his father is a well known international lawyer and vice-president of the International Academy of Human Rights. Somtow was educated at Eton and Cambridge, and his first career was in music. In the 1970s (while he was still in college) his works were being performed on four continents and he was named representative of Thailand to the Asian Composer's League and to the International Music Commission of UNESCO. His avant-garde compositions caused controversy and scandal in his native country, and a severe case of musical burnout in the late 1970s precipitated his entry into a second career - that of author.
He began writing science fiction, but soon started to invade other fields of writing, with some 40 books out now, including the clasic horror novel Vampire Junction, which defined the "rock and roll vampire" concept for the 80s, the Riverrun Trilogy ("the finest new series of the 90's" - Locus) and the semi-autobiographical memoir Jasmine Nights. He has won or been nominated for dozens of major awards including the Bram Stoker Award, the John W. Campbell Award, the Hugo Award, and the World Fantasy Award.
Somtow has also made some incursions into filmmaking, directing the cult classic The Laughing Dead and the award winning art film Ill Met by Moonlight.
