Product description

From the Publisher

Stephen Baxter is the pre-eminent science fiction writer of his generation. Published around the world he has also won major awards in the UK, US, Germany and Japan. Born in 1957 he has degrees from Cambridge and Southampton. He lives in Northumberland with his wife. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

Baxter's specialty is hard hard SF (and he's very good at it)...we're sufficiently hooked to want to come back for more. Classic Baxter. (Guy Haley SFX MAGAZINE)

Once again, Baxter proves himself a master of the epic canvas with alternating narratives, both terrifically imagined and addictively compelling. (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

A seriously impressive read. Simply magnificent. (Antony SF Books)

Proxima brilliantly juxtaposes the wonder of an uncaring universe with the depiction of humanity's valiant struggle to survive against all odds (Eric Brown The Guardian) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
