Product description

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)

Book Description

An awe-inspiring Planetary Romance from the author of FLOOD and the epic Xeelee sequence.
