This is another of Williams's fine body of work. As a tale with mystery, intrigue and adventure, it moves nicely along in its science fiction universe. The author has universe where no one really dies and worlds are manufacture with ease and diversity- even some worlds might have different laws of physics.

Another trademark of a Walter Jon Williams tale is that it can explore big ideas that are almost too big to grasp. When he's at his best, those ideas can make my brain hurt. I was taxed again with this work, and am grateful for the headache.

The concept of implied spaces is at once logical and magical. I'll leave it up to the reader to discover this way of seeing the world. That in itself makes this a worthwhile read.
