Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
In the distant future of Australia, the greenhouse effect is no longer a problem - until an ancient anti-greenhouse engine in space manages to switch itself on. Only the Highliber of Libris can devise a solution, with the aid of her mighty Calculor and her strange ally, the mysterious Abbess Theresla of Glenellen. Or can she? Across the deserts to the north, an escaped component has built a rival calculor, and a renegade librarian is organising an invasion. Which Calculor will win - or is there some quite new factor at work in the politics and battlefields of 40th century Australia?

Later published as the second half of Souls in the Great Machine.

Blurbs:
  • "The Greatwinter series will be one of the shapers of our sense of how to keep on living after the orrery splits." Interzone
  • "Mirrorsun Rising has all the ideas of Voices in the Light, and is better written ... providing an engrossing vision not only of a future Australia, but of a future Earth. So grab your flintlocks, gird your loins, go forth and get the book. This one comes with a hearty recommendation from the 'Peterborough Train Spotters Brotherhood'." Eidolon
  • "I was wiped out...a series that deserves to be read." Australian Realms
  • "Mirrorsun Rising: Book Two of Greatwinter offers something like A Canticle for Leibowitz rewritten for Australia and with the religion removed." Locus
