Product description


"Revenger is classic Reynolds-that is to say, top of the line science fiction, where characters are matched beautifully with ideas and have to find their place in a complex future. More!"--Greg Bear on Revenger

"[Reynolds is] a mastersinger of the space opera."
--The Times (UK) on Blue Remembered Earth

"[Reynolds] is the most gifted hard SF writers working today."
--Publishers Weekly on Beyond the Aquila Rift

"A leading light of the new British space opera."
--Los Angeles Review of Books on Alastair Reynolds

"A swashbuckling thriller--Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly--that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterization."--The Guardian on Revenger

"Heir to writers like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, Reynolds keeps up the tradition of forward thinking... An immensely thrilling, mind-bending piece of work."
--AV Club on House of Suns

"One of the giants of the new British space opera."
--io9 on Alastair Reynolds

"Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages."--Booklist

"This novel's ideas are mind-stretching, including a limbo where copies of the dead can be kept and interrogated, and a chillingly mischievous AI that tempts and mocks Dreyfus. The big concepts and complex story effectively pull readers into intriguing speculation about human identity and potential."--Publishers Weekly

"Elysium Fire is a tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story and characters you'll come to care about."--The Guardian (UK)
