Product description


"If you haven't read any Egan, you so should. He takes the wildest frontiers of today's science and turns them into brainbending speculative fiction that continually challenges the reader's ideas of both reality and humanity."
--Jon Evans, author of Dark Places and The Executor

"Greg Egan is a master of 'what-if' science fiction. Other physics? Different biology? Egan's characters work out the implications and outcomes as they struggle to survive and prevail. The most original alien race since Vernor Vinge's Tines."
--David Brin, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Earth and Existence

"Greg Egan achieves something very few SF novels manage: he creates some real, old-fashioned sensawunda."
--Stefan Raets, on The Clockwork Rocket

"The perfect SF novel. A pitch-perfect example of how to imagine aliens. Captivating from the first page to the superb last paragraph."
--Liviu Suciu, Fantasy Book Critic on The Clockwork Rocket

"More than any Egan story to date, the books of the Orthogonal trilogy place science in a broader social context."
--Karen Burnham, Strange Horizons on The Eternal Flame

"Egan's fans as well as lovers of SF that emphasizes hard science should welcome this tale of courage and self-sacrifice."
--Library Journal on The Eternal Flame

"When most people switch a minus sign for a plus, they re-do the math. Egan re-does the entire universe."
--Jerry Oltion, Nebula Award-winning author of Abandon in Place

Book Description
