Item description for Whores Of Babylon by Ian Watson, Lydia Wood & Gabriel Strange...

Alex Winter and Deborah Tate arrive by hovercraft at the city of Babylon, lying on the river Euphrates in the Arizona desert. He is a sociology drop-out from the University of Oregon at Eugene who wants to become a Babylonian. She has a much stranger ambition.

Their minds are babbling in the Greek that has been pumped into them via computer interface at the University of Heuristics. To them, English has yet to be invented and the young king Alexander lies dying in his palace. The city is dominated by the tower of Babel, its spiral roadway curling up towards the heavens and wide enough for several donkey carts. And women sit outside the Temple of Ishtar, waiting for some stranger to drop a coin in their laps. The prospect seems to fascinate Deborah. She wants to become one of the Whores of Babylon.

Whores of Babylon was first published in 1988 and won the British Science Fiction Association Award for Best Novel. Ian Watson has revised and updated the Immanion Press edition for a new century.

Reviews - What do customers think about Whores Of Babylon?

Topsy Turvy!  Oct 11, 2000
This book is topsy turvy. Alex Winter, a survivalist from 2000, is embarking on an experiment, which involves a sort of time freeze, where Babylon has been moved to the Arizona desert and frozen in time, in 323 BC before Alexander the Great's eventual demise. The story starts out as an affection aimed at a fellow traveler named Deborah Tate. The story keeps on throwing monkeywrenches into the works. And many ironic situations. And, of course, Alex creates a dizzying intellect that causes him to come up with the most intriguing conspiracy theories.
