Product description

Review

"Impressively bizarre . . . Egan may have out-Eganed himself with this one."—Publishers Weekly

"Egan (The Arrows of Time, 2014, etc.) specializes in inventing seriously strange worlds; this one might well be his weirdest yet."—Kirkus Reviews

"Hard science fiction in its purest form . . . Egan has always done the science half of science fiction as well as anyone can."—The 1000 Year Plan

"Per usual for Egan, conceptualizing the math and physics that form the foundation of this bizarre sci-fi tale takes some doing, but the results are well worth the effort."—B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog

“I always enjoy Greg Egan’s writing. Coupled with his scientific background and fertile imagination, he manages to come up with places and aliens unlike any others . . . not only does Egan offer a unique world and alien race – he also provides a cracking adventure story full of tension and excitement right from the start through to the climactic ending. . . . I love this one. Brilliant and inventive, this book reminds me all over again just why I love science fiction so much.”—Brainfluff, 10/10. Reviewed by Sarah J. Higbee

I haven’t been this surprised and entertained by world building for a long time . . . the most brutal and poignant depiction of oppression I have ever seen in fiction. This is why I love Egan’s work – he is absolutely unflinching. . . . Like all of Egan’s work, Dichronauts is brilliant and sweet, heartbreaking and obscure.”—The Kingdoms of Evil

I enjoyed this one very much—in large part because the characters and problems become very engaging as the story progresses, but also because I just liked messing around with the maths.”—The Oikofuge
